Another Zipper Posie Tutorial

this one is a little different. I made it in overlapping petals, with a gray zipper and a navy blue shank button as the center, and navy blue leaves.

I cut the gray petals about 3" long or so, then glued and pinched them like the photo above.

Six petals seemed about right! Glue them like the photo above overlapping a little.

It should look like this. Now glue a pretty button to the center.

Make some leaves for your pin, and glue them to the back. Now glue a pin back to it, and you're done. Pretty!



My 6 year old grandson who was told " well, why don't you go outside and start digging a hole to China?". And my dog Mamie, who wants to dig,too.
