My first attempt at a switch made out of paper and glue. The tab is covered on the top with glue, and attached to the “board” with more glue and wire. The tab slides into a slot in the paper with glue on the not picture side so that the tab makes contact with the glue. A via of wire and glue bring the trace back to the pictured side of the paper. Works pretty well when tested with an ohmmeter. And the glue is flexible enough that the tab doesn’t break off, though it doesn’t look like it will last for 10000 switches either.
