Make a cool package for your small gift.
Step 1: The Gift
We wanted to give our friend this "necklace". It's quite nice, shiny, made from glass.
But the idea of packing it into a simple box with ribbon wasn't satisfying - 'couse we're engineers! :P
Step 2: LED It Out! ;)
The gift was shiny, the can was shiny, the ribbon was shiny... damn, we need more shine in there! Yes, we need light! Light emitting diode! :D
Brilliant idea! Shine the inside of our can with LED. Hey, but that's not enough - let's make this gift sweeter! Let's find some sweets! Shiny sweets ofcourse!
And here we have a full gift-package kit...
Step 3: Let There Be Light!
Now, all we need to do is light up the led, and throw all the ingredients inside the can :)
We used a "flux" type LED - it has 4 legs. You need to bend them, so they would hold the batteries tight.
Step 4: Gift in the Hole!
Now throw all the collected stuff into the can. We've done it in order shown on the picture in second step.
Oh, and one more thing - because our gift has a lot of black string and it somehow dimms-down the light inside the can, we added a shiny aluminium "cup" from tealight to separate it from other shiny things inside.
Check out the result - nice, green shine :) Close it and give it :)
PS. It should work at least a couple of hours - depends on batteries.
