ZIP Halo Christmas Baubles:Once fully assembled you should have something that looks like the above picture.
Step 1:Use the dxf files provided to cut out your bauble, or use the file as a template to create your own design.
Step 2:Place the front Perspex piece on top of the Zip Halo and insert two M3x25mm screws through the holes on either side.
Step 3:Place the second piece of Perspex on the rear of the bauble. This should slot over the micro:bit and JST connector.
Step 4:Plug in the battery and tuck the wires in. Place the final Perspex panel over the screws on the rear and use two M3 nuts to fix in place. Tie some thread or ribbon around the hole at the top of the bauble and hang it up on your tree!
