No-Solder PaperCraft Crystal Light Strand

Fold beautiful crystal light covers for our NeoPixel Dot Strand and make them glow with 4 Animation Modes
Crystals catch our eye and our imagination like no other substance on earth. These unique structures are sought out and prized in almost every culture. Spiritualists and scientists alike have a fascination with crystals — the way they catch the light is unlike anything else on earth. They are rare and beautiful, and they resonate with us on so many levels.

These paper crafted crystals are a remarkable facsimile of the real thing. Their iridescence and faceted “occlusions” evoke a feeling of deep caverns, mystical seers and fortresses of solitude in my imagination. I just can’t stop making them! They are oh so satisfying to fold, and oh so satisfying to hold.

Add a strand of twinkly NeoPixels, and we’ve got a perfect recipe for magic.

Check out the full guide!
