So now you've got the logo done, its time for the stars! The thin fiber optics were about the same dia. as a sewing needle I had, so I just heated it up with a small candle and pushed it through the case form the inside out. The bigger holes were done with a paper clip in the same manner. I then looked at the case against a light as to see the effect. Once satisfied I counted the holes and planed to make some stars fade in and out , figuring out how many were to stay on and how many to fade (on each side). This is why I have four l.e.d's powering the stars.
After finding out the numbers, I cut the fibers longer then I needed so I could glue, then trim later. Next I bunched them together with thread and epoxied them, gluing the l.e.d.'s at the bottom.
