Zipper Flowers

Last week I discovered such a cool craft blog: Craftaholics Anonymous. Linda made the most fun and funky zipper flower bracelet. It was love at first sight. I had to have one.
Here's my new zipper flower bracelet! I love, love, love it!
You can get the tutorial here. I did change one thing on my flower. Before rolling it and gluing along the way, I did a basting stitch by hand and gathered it. It's a little different from Craftahoics, but it's got my own bit of flair to it. :) When it was finished, I grabbed my bead box and made a 3 strand bracelet for my new little bud to sit on. I have to say, I'm diggin the finished product!
If you're into this cute zipper thing, she has a few other zipper project tutorials on her site. (Lucky me, my mom gave me an entire gallon sized bag of old zippers. Play time!)

Did you just attach it to a bracelet you already had? How did you attach it?

Oooo! I love it! I think the beaded bracelet does the trick. I too made some zipper flowers and put them on a hat that was just a little too plain. I love them!
