Playing around with buttons

Who remembers playing with the button box as a kid?  I do.  My mum had an old biscuit tin full of buttons that I think must have come from my grandma's house, and it was always the biggest treat to be allowed to sort through them.   And nowadays, buttons are cool and crafty, and I've been using them to make pictures as birthday gifts:

I've been using a combination of new ones, vintage ones from the op shop, and also adding beads and other elements to create texture and interest.  I'm pretty happy with the results so far!
