Designer's Tip: Zipper flower: Unzip the zipper trim. Hold one end and fold into a point with the zipper on the inside edge. Fold another point on the opposite side and hot glue the bottom of the petals together. Repeat for a finished flower with 5 petals. Bend the prongs of the black gingham brad to lay flat. Glue the brad to the center of the flower.
