Zipper Pin Tutorial

a bit late, it's so hard to get time on the computer these days. I hope ya'll can see the pics and follow along!,lol.......

I used a small piece of burgandy zipper left over from another flower as the very center. Then I began wrapping the lavender one around it. Start off tightly winding, then loosen it up a bit, pinching and gluing as you go.

I begin winding the other half of the zipper, since I used a short one. The outer petals I like to pinch and glue in a wavy pattern.

Finished the rose, and cut out a couple leaves,each about 3" long.

Fold the leaf in a nice shape...I like this one! lol....glue to the back, slightly over-lapping.

I use a circle of felt; cut 2 slits in it for the pin backing to fit through,; slip it in and glue it on.

There it is, all finished! Pin it to your blouse, coat, purse, headband...whatever you like.

have fun!
