do a goggle search on how to use the Canon 500D/250D closeup lens.

This may be one time not to use AF. Start with the 18-55, manual focus on the smallest distance, then move the camera in or out. Do the same with the closeup lens attached.

It may be possible if you focus at infinity, the object will need to be a lot farther away.
