Using green paper, I cut out a stem and leaves and glued them on to my background...using a gluestick. Then I glued my CD onto my orange flower shape....for this I used PVA glue as the CD has a bit of weight. Only put the glue to the edge of the CD so the petals aren't stuck down, so there is some movement to them.
Finally, I glued the CD flower to the background. I tried using Sharpies (permanent markers) to decorate the CD and it turned out ok, however, this is for a Kindergarten class so I don't think the markers are suitable. Of course, if you are doing this with an older class, using permanent markers will be fun!!
Time for a plan B.

While out op shopping with my friend on Saturday, I came across this sweet little teacup and saucer. I knew it would be just perfect on my table that I had decoupaged with pictures from the Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady.
