Sneak Peek At The Button Floozies Swap

 I finished up my altered Altoids tin and selected my buttons for the swap Laurie is hosting over at Button Floozies.  Click the link or the one over on my sidebar.  There is still time to enter!
This is an Autumn-inspired swap so I decorated my tin with fall leaves.  I drilled a hole in the center of the top and inserted the button shank so I could attach it with a button cotter pin without damaging it.  The huge button reminds me of a sunflower or black-eyed Susan.  I won't spill out the buttons so I can preserve the mystery in case my swap partner turns out to be someone who follows my blog.  Join in the fun and it might just be you!

Genius drilling a hole. I love the patina from the burning. Makes it look so nice and vintage. Bonus surprise to get all those lovely buttons. Love your work Kathy. You always get every detail just so. SMiles...Renee
