Monochromatic Button Pin and Button Gift Box

Working with monochromatic color schemes is a quick and easy way to design a project.  You don’t have to worry about the colors not coordinating.  

This pin is going to be for Mother’s Day.  My mom sent me a link to the dress she is wearing and I thought the pin would be a great surprise.  If I know my mom well and I think I do, she will also save the box and re-use it.  If she does that will make me happy.

  • Jacquard Lumiere Paint
  • Gift Box
