I started revamping a frame last week.
Remember this frame I found a couple weeks ago?
I loved tdetail of the frame, they remind me of roses.
I'm going to add some paint and a burlap bag.......
Here is the clean frame drying outside.
Hopefully I'll have a finished piece to show you soon....

I decided I didn't really like the pearl brad as the center of the flower so I looked in my supplies and decided to add a black flower to the center. The black flower was about the same size as my smallest fabric circle so I decided not to use the smallest circles I had cut out.
Much better, the black flower is just what it needed.
I punched a hole in the center of the fabric circles and put the pearl brad through the black flower and then through all the layers of fabric circles.
This is my completed circle flower.
I started a large spiral of glue over the Walgreen's logo.
I didn't want to completely glue down my fabric, I had about a 5" circle of glue.
I put the circles on the glue and then put a little bit of glue between the two large circles.
I thought they might flop down a bit, that's why I put a little glue between the two large ones.
I figured the smaller circles weren't big enough to flop down much so I didn't glue them.
Petty simple, here is one side all done.
I wanted to finish the other side right away so I pulled out the insert that was in the bottom of the bag and kept it inside the bag in case any of the glue would seep into the inside of the bag.
It didn't appear to be doing this but better safe than sorry.
I was able to fold the bottom of the bag so I could get a flat surface to attach the fabric circles to the opposite side of the bag.
I did the same thing for the other bag and ended up with this as my finished bags.
Close up of my circle flower.
I'm sure my fabric will fray, and I'm OK with that.
I think I'll like them better the more tattered they get.
The two fabric embellished bags took less than 10 minutes to complete.
I might have to see if I can pick up a few more bags to embellish this week.
They might make great gift bags.
Now if I can just remember to use my reusable bags a bit more often....
Thanks for checking out my first official Three Dollar Thursday craft.

The Trick or Treat accent is a stamped image, one of the few I used on these cards.
After crumpling, sanding and then inking this skeleton paper I attached ribbon around a empty tag frame and put eyelets through the ribbon to hold it in place.
I love how the glittered black pumpkins show in this picture.
I'm loving the ghost button badge too.
These bug stickers were deep in my stash, I'm glad I brought them out.
Love the specimen stickers that came with the bug stickers, both are from Martha Stewart Crafts. I don't remember if they are from last year or the year before, I know I've had them for a long time.
Gee, school has not even started here yet and I can't stop doing Halloween crafts.
I'm sure my daughter will start thinking about October 31st pretty soon...... what about you?
