I actually did draw up a mount, make it, and then posted it, and then searched for similar things. And I had the same basic idea you did.
I was going to draw a flashlight mount and post it, but then I thought, "that's such an obvious idea, I'm sure someone else has already done it," and sure enough here's one that looks pretty good.

Instructions

1. Customize for your bike, flashlight and straps.
2. Print.
3. Attach to handlebars.
4. Snap in your flashlight and strap it down.
5. Go for a ride! :-)

**Tip**: make the flashlight mount as tight as possible. I set the diameter to 1mm **less** than the actual diameter of the flashlight.

Double-sided velcro is ideal as a strap for the flashlight, but inner tubing, rope, or whatever else you have lying around will work as well. For attaching it to your handlebars, ty-rips work best. A small piece of inner tubing also works well for added grip between the mount and the handlebars.

For added visibility, don't forget to print a diffuser for your flashlight! (Like [this one](http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:37728), or a short version of my [flashlight cone](http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:92149), as seen in this thing's pictures.)
