18-55mm kit lens for macro?

I have just been trying out the 18-55mm kit lens on a D3300 and have been trying to achieve some decent macro images, but the results aren't great IMO. Here is one of the shots: (i know it isn't exactly extreme macro

55mm, f/5.6, ISO 200, 1/800

Am i right to say the the 18-55mm lens isn't great for macro and isn't too sharp? Or am i doing something wrong (probably!). I used selective focus, a tripod and self-timer.

Any comments would be greatly appreciatied, thanks!
