Make an Infinity Mirror Box (with secret compartment)

February 13, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm PST

 - $15.00

What You'll Do:

For Valentine’s Day or anytime, turn a heart-shaped candy box (or other cardboard box of your choosing) into an infinity mirror box that hides a secret compartment for storing candy or other goodies!

An infinity mirror uses an optical illusion to create an endless tunnel of lights. We’ll use a few easy-to-find crafts supplies and electronics parts to create a box that fools the eye.

See a preview, plus instructions for advanced versions, on the Adafruit website.

What You'll Need:

  • small or medium heart-shaped candy box (look for all-cardboard candy boxes like these), or any cardboard box with a separate lid
  • LED light strand (such as this) -- dollar store versions are fine
  • 3V coin battery CR2032 (if not included with LED strand)
  • one-way mirror window film (such as this) -- sold in large rolls, but you only need two pieces about the size of your box
  • stiff black paper, such as cardstock or poster board
  • glue stick and/or thin double-sided tape
