    Does anyone know of a simple 555timer ic circuit that will make a 12 volt led strip blink. Someone suggested I go this route, and now that my ic chip has arrived, I am looking for a circuit that will do the job. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Scroll down the left hand side to 50 ...555 circuits.
    Click on that.......
    Scroll down main page to complete list under the heading "contents".
    Click on delay...

    As an added note, does your LED strip require a driver or is it built in..??

    Thank-you. Great resource. I think it has one built in cause it works if I connect 12 volts directly to it

    The 555 can drive 200 mA max.
    If your LED strip requires more current, use a driver as shown in our resource "Got a question about driving LEDs?"
