Flowers and Frames

Happy weekend everyone!  On a recent trip to Michael's and Joann's I found some great stuff in the bargain bins. I made some fabric flowers with all of the pretty silk I bought on clearance.  All I did was cut a bunch of circles, fold in fours, cut in the middle of the folds, crumple the circles, and burn the edges.  Finally I hot glued all of the layers together and sewed a button in the middle.  Kind of cute for my first attempt.  What do you ladies think?  After I made the flowers, I was still in a crafty mood so I decided I was going to do something with the cute $1.99 frames I bought at Michael's.  All I did was glue some patterned paper to the back and hot glued the  Tim Holtz figurine and applique to each frame.  Nice, easy and cute!    Thanks for looking!
