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!!

I wish I could go shopping with you!!! The book is gorgeous. And surely a button shop is more excitng to visit because it is in STRASBURG. We have WarrensBURG, here just a half hour's drive from me, but I promise you, it is nothing special. :)
Margaret you are so sweet. Thanks for sending your peeps my way. May I do the same for you? I LOVE these paper flowers! Isn't it true that the packaging can be just as fun as whats inside? I am putting you on my links list now! This is so much fun communicating as if we lived next door!
You are SO my kind of gal ;) I always enjoy the wrappings, your flower looks wonderful as does your niched French book = ooh la laa, Love how you do that! Robins shrines and jewelry are really fantastic TFS! HoHoHo
