Flower tutorials + Zippers

To coincide with the launch of Creating Keepsakes magazines great, 'Fabulous Flowers' issue, I thought I'd share a week of flower tutorials. Let's start with zippers shall we!?
I did this page & tutorial last month for MME, using their metal tooth zipper trim to make this stylish rolled flower. The perfect embellishment for this page about my gorgeous Mum.

Another example of the versatility of zippers can be seen on this page I created for Kim Jackson's multi-media flower article in the Fabulous Flower issue.
