Lay out your components and decide on a circuit layout.
Extend your programming pins to the edge of the page so that you can connect to them to program the microcontroller even after it has been integrated in the circuit.
Trace final design through tracing paper.
Open in Photoshop and adjust white balance so that white is white and lines are black.
If you did not fill your traces in your drawing then do so with the filler tool in Photoshop.
Save image and drag into Illustrator. Select Object >> Live Trace >> Make and Expand.

OPTION 2) Print out to fill in by hand.
OPTION 3) Lasercut double-sided sticky tape for
Transfer traces to paper.
Apply gold leaf.
Brush away excess gold leaf.
Use flux on gold leaf traces to solder on components.
Connect alligator clips to programming connections to program microcontroller. See microcontroller programming for detailed instructions.
