I started with this campfire from SVGRepo and with a few modifications, I think it works well for the badge. Above is the top part of the badge, and below is the bottom part with the circuit. You print both parts and do a bit of folding and taping to create the two layers.
The circuit consists of a red LED, a CR2032 battery, and Maker Tape to connect it all together. There’s also a paperclip that can hold the paper switch closed to keep it turned on.
This one has an extra illustration to show the layer assembly. I’ll admit, I’m not the greatest illustrator, but I’m getting better. Most of my work doing vector illustration in the past 10 years has been for technical drawings used for digital fabrication, not for… art. Creating these illustrations is a lot of fun though, and I’m glad I get to do it.
Like many other projects for Brown Dog Gadgets, we provide a full-color template and a black & white version if you want to do all the coloring and decoration yourself.
These are fun projects that can be done at home or in a workshop setting using cheap materials. More badges are coming…
