Fall Button Swap
Here are pictures of what I made and gave to my partner, Lee, in the Button Floozies fall button swap. I am assuming Lee has received her package by now, so I decided it was time to post. We were supposed to decorate a standard-sized Altoid tin and include at least 40 buttons--all with a fall theme of some sort.
It was fun finding the buttons...and it certainly helped discovering a huge bin of buttons at a flea market last month to paw through. I bought the pretty paper and owl sticker (couldn't resist the sparkle!) at Hobby Lobby and otherwise used bits and pieces of things that I had around the house.
I ended up putting over 50 buttons in the tin and tied the tin together just to make sure it didn't open in transit. Hope Lee liked it. Thank you, Laurie, for hostessing this. It was a great deal of fun.
