Pretty (yet painful) fabric flowers

My daughter LOVES small pouches, containers and boxes to store her treasures. So, after researching fabric flowers yesterday I decided to try making some small flowers to decorate a small wooden box for her. I found this fabulous (and very easy) tutorial on how to make no-sew fabric flowers. The flower assembly went smoothly and as I was gluing them onto the lid of the box, I fumbled and the largest flower fell - hot glue side down - onto my finger. I quickly ran to the sink and pulled the glue off along with 2 or 3 layers of skin. It was PAINFUL.

However, there is a happy ending. I have a daughter who is very happy with her latest trinket box.
