One of the most common sights in all craft shops is the thin and pliable craft wire which comes in a variety of colours. This wire can be manipulated by hand and cut with the normal scissors. My little project for the day involves three objects - a small basket, wooden buttons and craft wire.
This little roughly woven basket is perfectly set off by the polished buttons, which I have threaded using ther craft wire, and then wound round the basket. When you are tired of it, just remove the wire and use the buttons elsewhere!
