Day of the Dead: Paper Circuits

The image below, my first prototype, only blinks.
Day of the Dead Paper Circuit

Taking inspiration from my Arizona roots, I've been drawing and illuminating sugar skulls, with the idea of using the design for a book cover.

The vine/video features a paper circuit that has some LEDs blinking
while others fade.  I've sped it up here, because it's much slower in real life (and quite creepy in the dark).  I ended up using "for loops" to achieve this effect.

This is my less than elegant circuit.
