Oldie for Friday

Hello Blog friends, hope you are well.  If not I am sending some (((((hugs))))) in hope that they help.
I am not Blogging much just now, but I do try to keep up with what you are all doing.
I have had offers for days away  ....  that`s something I definitely do not refuse.  I will tell you about them later.
Oldie for Friday was started by Erika over at:-
Its for fun, anything Crafty you have done in the past, pop it on your Blog and lets have a look.
Here is mine for today:- 

A little box of Buttons:-
I made a box to fit under the Die Cut.  I know the box was about 3 inches deep to hold all the buttons.
SB Lacy Square Die and SB Square Die to cut out the centre.
Acetate over the aperture
Mieflower Organza Ribbon tied in a triple bow
Selection of Buttons to make a Button Necklace
Someone asked for the Button Selection to make their own Necklace rather than buy one ready made. This was how I presented it.

That`s me for today
Thank you so much for sticking with me I really appreciate that
Till next time
