This bow tie is a super fun and quick way to add some Maker flair to any outfit or costume.

To celebrate Maker Week, I’ve been hard at work designing this quick and simple project to add some serious style to the Maker Week festivities.

I love designing new ways to incorporate LEDs into my 3D paper projects like this bow tie, or like my line of Light-Up Pop-Up greeting card kits, now live on Kickstarter.

And now, itt’s time to celebrate! Make a bow tie and use #MakerFlair (that’s f-l-a-i-r ) to share! Iff you’re around World Maker Faire in New York this weekend, September 26 and 27, I’ll be offering these as a free activity, so be sure to stop by and say hi!
