We will make a Mother’s Day Gift Circuit Specialists’ Style. Especially after the pandemic, we are lucky to be able to celebrate with other family members. We want to help you with this year’s Mother Day gift idea. This article will provide everything you need to complete this kit for your mother. This project has a couple of flexibility points where you can be creative and custom the design to your liking.

What is a Light Flashing Circuit?
This topic was covered in our last project, you can read From Prototype on PBB-272B into a Finished Product to learn more. I will attach the schematic for the LED flashing circuit below.
How to build the LED panel?
Firstly, you need to sketch the idea and then build it with LED to see how it looks. This is where you can be creative with the design. I changed the heart design to a ballon design later.
Secondly, cover it with a carbon fiber sticker on the non-solderable side.
Then transfer the LED over carefully, making sure you poke the right holes or the surface won’t look as nice.
Note: I suggest doing one line at a time so that it is not too clustered to solder.
Now, repeat the step for the second line. I change the design from heart t ballon, but you can also change it to fower, fish, etc.
Make sure to take your time for the surface to look clean and complete.
Now solder the positive side of the top row LED together and the same with the negative. You can do the same with the bottom row.
In my case, I pushed it a bit where I connect the first letter and the ballon together and the letter U and MoM together. This will help the flashing effect a bit better.
How to connect the On-Off Switch?
At this point, you should already build the LED Flashing Circuit, or you can take a look at this From Prototype on PBB-272B into a Finished Product for more information.
Solder to On-Off switch on the ground path between the flashing circuit and the battery. Solder the light signal wires to the LED panel.
Test the unit before installing the hex standoff.
This is a Mother’s Day Gift Circuit Specialists’ Style. Especially after the pandemic, we are lucky to be able to celebrate with other family members. To celebrate that we wrote this article to help you with this year’s Mother Day gift idea. I hope you take the couple of flexibility points where you can be creative and custom the design to your mother’s liking. However, I make some space in the back so you can write something nice to your mother, nothing beat a nice word. Happy Mother’s Day 2022!
