Awesometastic Awards of Appreciation

About: Has code in brain, soldering iron in hand, Art Blakey blaring in the background... transforms techno babble into reality and is strangely fond of the ellipsis.
My wife is a music teacher... and she was asked to create and give a presentation on teaching techniques - in not a lot of time. She's a naturally gifted teacher, but 'upped' her level of preparation considerably to meet the challenge. 

As I reflected on all the work she was doing, it crossed my mind... that she really deserved a trophy. Something special to acknowledge her effort.

So, I made one...




 * some slow or fast fade RGB LEDs from Adafrut 
          http://www.adafruit.com/products/679

* super glue
* electrical tape
* CR1220 coin-cell batteries
* snips or needle-nose pliers (to help bend the legs of the LED)
* some 3D printed parts - available from TinkerCAD below





I used Gold 1.75mm PLA and Natural 1.75mm PLA from matterhackers.com; the prints turned out quite nice.

Ready? The steps should all be pretty easy to follow...
