Fall in Love with Buttons - my swap....

Today I'm sharing
the tin that I made for my
swap partner DeeDee...
 I basically used Mod Podge for everything...
I tried to get some Fall like colors with the oranges, brown and green.
 I decided to distress the bottom to give it some age...
this was a 3 part process...
 I lined the inside with
this alphabet fabric from
filled it with as many buttons as I could fit!
 I decided to throw in some extras because I know
only other crafters can really appreciate these types of things..
A spool decoupaged, some brass charms and a ribbon necklace,
and I made the ring with the vintage red-glass button in the center.
I also gave her a few other Fall/Winter themed goodies...
and packed them all up
like so
I had so much fun wrapping it all
and trying to make it feel special for her.
I was glad to know that she received
it after going through a rough week
and it was a bit of a bright spot for her.

Now that the fall swap is over...
onwards towards the Christmas Swap!
Peek in at
to get info on the new swap and to see some of the other
tins that were created!
Happy Thursday Ya'll!
