1. Cut the plastic bottle using a cutter from the cap. You could also use scissors to trim the edges.

3. Tape the back of the toilet paper roll so that it is properly covered. Insert the battery into the toilet roll. Make sure that the opposite end of the wire should come out from the open end. 

4. Insert the second battery with the negative side at first. The positive and negative end of the battery would allow the electricity to flow. Put this toilet roll inside the cut plastic bottle. 

5. Make sure that there is a connection between the ends. Also, you could see the bottom half of the bulb. Stick the popsicle sticks outside the toilet role to make it look beautiful. If you want, you could paint the sticks with different colors. 

6. You are done! Light up the flashlight when there is no power.
