LED Tea Light Candle

Anyone have plans or a site to build a LED Tea Light Candle that will flicker.
I thought there was a plan in Nuts and Volts years ago that used a yellow and blinking red LED but can't find it.
Thanks

Re: DVD Scratch Repair

Ken1
I used a car wax cream type and wax and buff from the center out. It has worked for me about 8 out of 10 times well enought that the disc will stop skipping and then I burn another copy.
But as Chris said if the scratch is deep into the foil it's toast.
Good Luck

The wires that go to the battery from the inverter should be as short as possible and fused at the battery
