Each year I ask for buttons for Christmas - occasionally that request gets a response. I actually think I just like the look of a bottle full of buttons - the complexity of colours, shapes etc. I have started to put a few of the buttons I have received together into a flower format. This is the result so far - I have worked a 10 cm (4") area. I will cut some mat board shortly to see how it comes up framed and what more work it needs.
