Coin cell battery holders are not the best looking components. I am constantly scouring the internet for design ideas to incorporate into projects. I was delighted to come across this origami battery box that’s simple to make and really delightful to look at.

What you need:

  • 3 coin cell battery’s (each 3V)
  • Copper tape
  • Glue stick
  • Tape
  • Ruler
  • Card stock (any color and size)

Read on for the instructions. Here’s the template.

Here are Instructions to make an electronics book light that uses the battery box.
