I want to start a project using the LILYPAD lilytiny. First problem - it says that the Rainbow LED strip can be"taken apart at your leisure to be sewn etc" How?? I don't want to break it before I even get going! Thanks for telling me.

Yep, already been there -and stopped there as well as I need the LEDS to be individual not in a strip. Do they just break apart, do I apply force, do I cut the slight groove ? I'm terrified to break them!

You break them.. But if you want to be careful, use a hobby knife to cut more out of the grooves. Common sense..
