Claudia came up with a really cute little project. Sweet little trinket boxes made from items most people would toss out. I would never in a million years thought to do something like this. I am always amazed at how clever my readers truly are. I think the lids made from buttons are the best part! Here is what she has to say:
These were fun to make using a votive candle holder, a salt dip and 2 salt shakers and raiding my button box.
First I found a button to fit the top, then a smaller button to keep the top from sliding off my container.
I then layered more buttons for various looks and topped the buttons with a shank button to use for a handle.
I connected all the buttons with some string I had on hand. My friends and I have made several of these as gifts.
After seeing this I have to make one myself. Very clever Claudia!
