Add two strips of copper tape across the bottom of one of the plates. Make sure the strips are parallel and spaced about 1/8 inch apart.
Place the battery onto the copper tape so that it only touches one of the strips. Then hot glue the battery down so it can’t move.
Add a short piece of copper tape to connect the top of the battery to the strip of tape that it is not sitting on. You can now add your Circuit Stickers between the two strips. If they don’t light up, check your polarity and turn them around.
Add hot glue around the edge of the bowl and quickly press it down centered on the plate over the battery.
