On the Trash to Treasure table, Karen brought a ton of other craft items that were her mother's. She had one box filled with zippers. I grabbed one of each color and thought I'd try to make those really cute zipper flowers/broaches that I've been seeing everywhere. So...I looked through some UTube videos and then made some myself.
Thanks goodness for leftovers because I used some felt that my mother gave me awhile back and the trusty glue gun and came up with these two.
So easy! I hope Karen didn't donate all those zippers because when the ladies in our Scrappin' in Patterson group see these, they are going to want to make some for themselves.
Here they are in blue:
1. cut felt circle
2. roll and hot glue the zipper a few times to create the flower center
3. hot glue it down to the felt.
4. squeeze a little hot glue around the center and glue down the zipper strip. go slowly and hold down for a few seconds to make sure the zipper sticks.
5. trim felt circle closely against the zipper
