As I said earlier I visited the button shop in Strasbourg last weekend and the few things I bought were packaged in a small brown and red paper bag. Of course I've done nothing with the things I actually paid for but the bag has been put to good use! I ripped it up and glued it to one of my weekly cards (only 3 to go, yay!) then used it in the centre of the flower. I've made these circular flowers from fabric before but this is the first one out of paper.I picked up an old French book in the market for altering, by the way 1633 is not the date of publishing!!
