From the sound of your post it seems either fully flat or the battery has really died. When you say "plugged into my charger for at least 12 hours" I hope that you mean to the wall? If you say yes on that one, then is that into a power board, or directly into the wall? Have you tried a different charge cable? They break internally very easily and can cause many silly problems. A fully flat iPhone can only get going from mains power, and depending on the state of your battery a power board may infact still not give enough juice to kick it into life.

If that still yeilds no result then it is time to throw in a new battery. You can purchase directly through ifixit.
