buttons!

My mother-in-law had some extra buttons she wanted to get rid of and asked if I wanted them. Of course! Well, I didn't realize how many buttons she was talking about. Wowsers. She thought they would make a great craft project for the kids. I dumped them into a big box and gave them containers to scoop and fill. They had a great time. Of course I did keep a few I can use on some of my layouts. ;)
Colby wanted to make some valentine's for his class so I showed him a few projects and he picked this one. The design is 100% Colby's too. I cut, scored and assembled the boxes but Colby decided on colors, stamps, punch...well you get the picture. I thought he did a great job. On the back he wrote all the kids/teachers names and the candy is taped into it so it doesn't fall out.
