Pretty Prima Tin

Supplies : Marrakech paper by Basic Grey; Buttons by My Minds Eye; Flowers by Prima; Ribbon in Ocean Tides and Jute by Papertrey Ink; Repurposed Calypso Prima Tin

The Practical Scrappers challenge this week is to use up buttons! I have so many buttons and I love using them on EVERYTHING! It seems like I'm always sticking a button on something here or there, but for the challenge this week I really wanted to make something that uses more buttons than my usual. This darling Calypso Prima tin that I had hanging about was just waiting to be altered! I picked out the buttons first and decorated the top then found some paper to match. Thinking back I probably should have picked the paper first, but everything worked out ;) Doesn't it make such a pretty little jewelry tin! Or for a crafter I think it would be darling holding prestamped images, flowers, or a kit! I stuck my current watch in there for the picture, I love how the turquoise looks against that paper. I'm so addicted to these watch bands and am always excited to see the news ones at our Pebbles store. Anyway, enjoy and have a great Tuesday!

Fun! And I like your watch too! I am still wearing the Winne the Pooh watch my (now) hubby bought me a couple months after we first met like 15 years ago - must have been a good watch!
Cheers,
