Rings Part1 *{zippers}*

I was inspired on a recent trip to Target. (It happens quite often there actually).
There's been so many versions of the zipper such as hair flowers and shoe ruffles, but I saw a ring there and thought...
"YAY! A Project!" and here's what I created...

And here's how:
First warm up that hot glue gun! Get some pliers and glue that first roll like so...
(you have to use pliers for the first twist because zippers are too stubborn).

Then keep touching with glue while you roll a little more...

Once you've got your flower-center size, cut off the excess below, like so...

Now shape and glue your first pedal,
(just glue the cloth right to the bottom of the flower-center)...

Now shape and glue your second pedal,
I looped the shape and then made sure to glue it in place
so that it's in place for your next pedal...see how the excess points down at an angle?...

Continue with three more pedals...Five seems to be the magic number,
but you can play and see.

Now some of these pedal-pointies were bothering me, so I glued them down...

If you dont glue them down it could look like this...


Here's the pink Peony flower...with the points glued down...

And here's a spunky simple twist zipper flower...

Just go to a craft store and buy some adjustable rings. Glue them on and secure it.
Now all I have to do is decide which one to wear!

DON'T FORGET TO STOP BY SOON!!!
