Is this printed electronics project feasible?

I am trying to mount the circuit in the image to a PCB made from printed silver on paper. The only problem is that the silver wires are slightly resistive. Right now a 25 cm X 120 micron wire is 4 ohms. With that in mind will this circuit still work?

Much better to post a jpg file then a PDF file this way we don't have to download anything.

I would urge you to use perf board and use point to point wiring (use wire wrap wire). https://www.sparkfun.com/products/8031 https://www.sparkfun.com/search/results?term=perf+board

Unfortunately the goal of the project is to show off the paper PCB

Here is a JPG of the circuit diagram

I have used silver paint successfully in the past. Your only problem will probably be the traces cracking while flexing.

I would add an extra capacitor on the Vcc pins for decoupling. Just one LED is probbly OK, it is when it starts to draw a lot of current you get problems.

Grumpy_Mike:

Are you referring to pin 7?

I am very new to this. Do you mind explaining how you would attach it? For example, would this capacitor be in series or in parallel with the capacitor between pins 7 and 8? What size capacitor would you use?

What size capacitor would you use?

0.1uF ceramic.

would this capacitor be in series or in parallel with the capacitor between pins 7 and 8

Pin 21 should not be connected to Vcc. It should be connected to a 0.1uF cap with the other end to ground. I would also put a cap between pin 20 and ground (pin 22)
