Introduction

Create a one of a kind corsage that can change color to match your ensemble! This project explores one option for creating an accessory with the Silk Flower LED - an organza flower with a built-in common cathode 5mm RGB LED. We’ll be showing you how to make a corsage with it, but this circuit could also be built into a headband, brooch, or other small accessory.

We’ll be attaching a switch to each powered leg of the LED - red, green, and blue - to control them individually. This allows us to mix up to 7 colors - red, green, blue, yellow, cyan, purple, and white - depending on the combination of switch states.

Note: This is an e-textiles project, but we'll be soldering to prep our LED for sewing.
