How to Fold and Connect Copper Tape

Most of the copper tape that you can find in the store has a conductive (non-sticky) side, and a not-as-conductive (sticky) side. If you want to make sure that your electricity flows nicely throughout your circuit, you can do two things: 1. When you come to a corner or a turn, don't cut up your tape into multiple pieces -- just fold it so that a single piece of tape goes around the circuit. 2. If you have to use multiple pieces, you can do that by folding in the edge of the second piece of tape before you connect them. This way, the conductive sides of both pieces are still touching.
