Button it!

This is another challenge by Sue for the CBC birthday celebrations:

Button it!! so guess what you HAVE to use here? Yup buttons AT LEAST 6

I decided to alter one of my Green & Black's cocoa tins - I love their cocoa and I like the tins too, very handy. I used offcuts from DCWV pocket full of posies, a couple of sticky ribbons, a couple of Craftime blooms and, of course, some buttons on the lid.

As I've used 2 papers - the patterned one round the tin and the textured one within the lid, 2 flowers and at least 2 buttons, I'm linking for the recipe on Everybody art 81. Also, Little paper shop 58 colour challenge calls for 'turquoise, white and dark purple' - they are all here. 'Buttons and flowers' is challenge 12 on Pixie dust studio, so I'm also linking there. And another one for Quirky crafts 23: 'buttons' (perhaps you can tell that I love buttons!).

And it's now joining some of my other 'Green & Black cocoa tins':
