Sorta St. Patty Decor

As I've said before, I've never decorated for St. Patty's day before. Does anyone else find the vast majority of St. Patty's day decor a little tacky? I saw this flower on my friend's fabulous card -making blog. I don't make cards, although browsing through her blog made me want to start. However, I thought those flowers would be the perfect touch of green that I needed.
Step 1- Cut out a bunch of circles. I wanted to make 3 of different sizes. First I used a spool of thread as a pattern, but it's really hard to cut out good circles, so I finally cut a bunch out w/ my Cricut.

Step 2-Fold them like this. I folded some more than others b/c I like the look. Just fold the ones for the same flowers the same.

Arrange into a flower shape and glue down. I used hot glue. I stuck a button on top and put in an old frame.

I like it so much, I may leave it there all year long.
