Freebie competition time

Can you believe this is my 397th blog post???
that's a whole lot of crafting! (and a whole lot of reading too, thanks for sticking with me!)
In honour of my pending 400th post this months freebie is.....
a bumper parcel of 400 buttons!

I'm bored with the random number generator so in English Summer Fete tradition this will be a guess-the-weight competition...that's right, simply comment on here with your guess (in grams please) and the closest to the actual weight will win!
How much can 400 assorted buttons weigh?

Be sure to read the comments and make sure your guess is different to everyone else's guess please.
The winner will be announced next Wednesday (10th September) so there's plenty of time to make an educated guess.

small print
*one entry only, else I'll disqualify you ;-)
*ensure I can contact you via your comment
*check that your guess hasn't already been guessed, if it has yours won't count!
*winner will be announced on Wednesday 10th September
*try not to spend too long imagining what you could do with 400 buttons.....

GOOD LUCK!
