Valentine Cards with the Letter Writing Club

YuKonstruct hosted a Valentine’s Day card making night with the Letter Writing Club.

We had 7 different card kits for participants to choose from, from relatively simple to fairly complex, but the most popular ones, by far, were the kits containing LEDs to make light-up valentines. The circuit stickers that made the incredible cards possible were provide by Chibitronics.

There’s still time for you to get in on the card-making action! The Letter Writing Club will be at (co)space on February 3, with card kits and typewriters for writing out your love letters.

We’re also hosting an all-ages Valentines Day themed craft night on February 11 from 6pm to 9pm. There will be lots more fun crafts for you to make for your sweetie.

Step-by-step instructions for assembling your own amazing cards are available on Instructables.
