Zippity Doo Dad

Good Saturday Morning Ladies!!!
This week at Just Us Girls we have a really cool 3-D technique for you to try!  It might sound difficult but it's truly not!  As a matter of fact  it can be quiet addicting!   Dana is our hostest this week and she has a tutorial for this beauty here!  While looking for an old zipper I came across a stash of old zippers that had never been opened from my moms stash, price tag .45 cents!  Anyway my zipper was 7 inches long so I just adhered the two sides together with my fabric glue.  I love not only how nice it looks but how easy it was to make!  I hope ya'll get a chance to make one.  I'll be anxious to see what everyone comes up with so go get busy girls!   

Supplies;  PTI- Beautiful Bloom paper pack, white cardstock, Waltzingmouse-labels #4 stamp, PTI-Communique curves sentiments, Petaloo-florals, Spellbinders-Labels #4, Kaiser-pearl brad, Ribbon-misc.
