Buttons For Button Swap

I signed up for a button swap on the Lampwork Etc. forum. Not sure why I did that since I have no time to be playing around but I do like making buttons. I also need to make some for more bracelets that I want to make. I figure I can make a few each time for the swap. These are the ones I made last night:

For some strange reason, I was having issues making buttons last night. Usually I don’t have problems and have never had one crack while I’m working on it. They are so small, it’s hard for them to cool off that much. Well, last night I cracked two of them. Then I couldn’t make a flower to save my life. On a few of these I had to rip the flower off and start over. Fortunately I was able to save the button. I even had issues making the striped ones. The dots weren’t melting in correctly. That’s why the one on the top second from the right has a dark middle. Not that it looks terrible but it wasn’t the design I was going for.
