I used some old buttons taken off a shirt, some beads from a broken necklace and some other trinkets inside.
I even made a flower like I used for my calling cards at one time using some tiny scraps from the trash.

This is just some trash from Wal Mart.  It was in the bottom of a box, but works great for my calling cards!
