Scissor Keep received by Tricia

I saw on the Exchanging with BeckySC blog that Tricia received the scissor keeper I stitched for her. I chose Victoria's Sampler ornament from the 2009 JCS Ornament issue. I used 28ct cappuccino fabric and the called for DMC threads. The beads and buttons were from my stash. Tricia said she liked it, so I'm pleased. It was a fun stitch once I got going. My eyes were giving me such fits due to allergies and some eye strain. It's hard to stitch when your eyes are dripping!! I haven't received my exchange piece yet but sure it will arrive soon.

Becky, it's so pretty and colorful with all the different buttons. You did a fabulous job with the finish! Love it!

I have this stitched, but was worried about the buttons! :) Can you tell me what you used for the buttons? Just cheap ones in a pack, like from Walmart? Or did you buy what was called for?
