super-basic LED stuff Answered

I'm working on a project for Halloween that involves some LEDs, I've got a bunch of old cigar boxes painted up to look like Ghostbusters proton traps and I just want to have red lights on them, preferably blinking. I got an LED assortment at Radio Shack to experiment with. When I put a 9v battery to one I saw a tiny flash and then nothing, so I think I overpowered it. But when I went down to a 1.5v AA battery nothing happens. I'm sure this is stupid-simple, but I've got no experience whatsoever. Any specifics would be appreciated. Thanks!!!
