Saving Strawberry Crowns


I love eating strawberries and I thought of saving those crowns and inserted them between my magazine pages to flatten them. Then I used a contrasting color scrapbook paper to stick them using glue. Then I dug some of my colored buttons and put in the center of each crown. I now have these strawberry crown flowers decorated in my scrapbooks.

    These are adorable. Another idea, put a small magnet on the back to hold pictures on your refrigerator.
