I have an 11 Inch X 14 Inch Thin Board.

So I got a Flat LED Strip.

Every so many Inches You can Cut it to get the Length You need.

So I was going to Cut Say 24 Strips off the LED Strip I have.

I Cut My first 4 Inch Strip off of My LED Strip I have.

I can See the 2. Contacts but they are so Small I will not be able to Attach My Wires to it.

What I wanted to do is Cut Say 24 Strips off of the LED Strip I have and the Stick them to My Board and Connect all of them.

But like I Say the Contacts are so Small I will not be able to Link them.

Do they Sell an 11 Inch X 14 Inch Flat LED Board?

This is the LED Strip I have
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00X5MEHGS/ref=ox_sc_act_image_2?smid=A1BEZVTKV42A98&psc=1

It is 16 Feet and I was going to Buy 2. of them.
Then Cut Say 24 or 25 Strips off of it.

And every Peace I Cut off was going to be 8. Inch Long.

I was then going to Stick the Strips on an 11 Inch X 14 Inch Cardbord and Connect every Strip to the one next to it by Hand.

Then I would have one big 11 Inch X 14 Inch LED Bord.

But the Connectors on the Strip is so small I can not do it.

They sell LED Strip Connectors that attach to cut strips and allow them to be wired into your circuit. I’ve provided a link below for some that may work in your application.

LED Strip Connectors

I’ve used these before in one of my projects.

Ok I Looked at the Link You gave Me
https://www.amazon.com/iCreating-Co...RpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU=&pldnSite=1

They Say it connects with Tape.
It Looked to Me that the End that is Square would Slide on to the End of the LED Connectors.

How do they work?
Thanks for all Your help.
The square end does attach to the end of the tape/strip. It’s called a suitcase connector, because it operates like a, well, suitcase.

You open the connector to the side like a suitcase. You insert the strip in the opening and then close the connector. “Spikes” pierce the copper tabs on the tape/strip and the connection is brought out via wires to make it easy to wire up the strips. No soldering necessary.

The Top of the LED Strip is a Clear Cass that I Peal back to show the 2. Conntects.

But then I have to Turn it over to have it go On to the 2. Wires in the Connector.

But it never work and never Lays Right.

Do they Sale Push On Connectors like these?

If you out 24 strips at 14" each on your panel, that's a lot of inches of LED. Then 12V x 0.03A per inch, your at 0.36W per inch. The total is suddenly 120W. You'll need a 12v at 10A (bare minimum) power supply.
So, all of that will eventully be heat - I hope you're not putting the panel in a box or that cardboard will be burning soon. I would recommend an aluminum panel (1/8" minimum) and some cooling fins on the back side of the aluminum panel - and don't put it all in a closed box. Keep it Plenty open and probably even a fan.
