Tinker Tailor Soldier Sailor

There I was with an extra  sheet of recylced plastic that
I had inked with alcohol inks; left over from a challenge.

I thought it would make a nice big button
so I cut it with a circle die (4 inches diameter) and made two holes
centrally and sewed it with baker's twine.

I had been thinking about buttons and I had in my head
Tinker Tailor Soldier Sailor.
This is a counting game where the buttons on a child's outfit are 
counted using soldier, sailor, etc.
I had sheets of these little letters lying around 
and decided to use them to make words around the circumference.
( tinker tailor soldier sailor)

I affixed it to a light blue linen effect card 
and arranged a few smaller buttons.
