Zip on over to Want2Scrap for a zipper flower tutorial!

**Looking for my Just Us Girls post?  Please click {HERE}**

Hello friends!  I hope you can zip on over to the Want2Scrap today and check out an simple tutorial on how to make your own flowers out of zippers!   I have been noticing these fab flowers all over the place and I had to make one myself. 
Click {HERE} to head on over to Want2Scrap.



I used mine on a fashion oriented card because I do so love the trend of vintage seamstress items and the dress form trend that has been all over lately. I was able to tuck in bits of vintage goodies in the pocket inspired by the challenge over at City Crafter Challenge blog.
 
This pocket would be great with a fabric store gift card tucked inside too!

Check out the bits of Want2Scrap bling adorning my zipper flower and also, my handmade original button card.
 
The button card was designed in Word, printed, and then I added the glamour girl stamp in the center from Clearly Vintage. Isn't she fabulous dah-ling?!
