Fall in Love with Buttons Swap gift!

Maggie participated in our Fall in Love with Buttons 2012 Swap, and has completed her exchange with her lucky partner.  Plus, she sent me a special hostess gift, too!  I wanted to show you on the blog because I KNOW those of you who are still working on your swap (like me!) will be very inspired!
As you can see, she decorated her Altoids tin with felt and Fall themed buttons; then wrapped it all up in that colorful Fall fabric and tied it with orange and yellow rick rack!  It was such a fun little bundle to open!
Here you can see that Maggie also decorated the inner lid with leafy paper, and filled the tin with some button gifts!  I love all the leafy motifs and the fall palette, but am especially enamored by the vintage ones, like the row of antique glass buttons still carded that she included!
To further spoil me, she included another Fall fabric fat quarter and a sheet of button stickers!
Are you inspired?  I hope so!

For those participating, don't forget that the Fall in Love with Button Swap 2012 tins are due in the mail  no later than this Friday, October 19!  We have 36 participants and will be showing as many of the tins as possible on this blog and on our Flickr page, too, so please be sure to check back!

I will also be announcing our next swap, a Holiday Swap, this week, so stay tuned!
