Use old zippers to create flowers for pins, shoe clips, photo frames, etc. I prefer the zippers with silver metal teeth, but the nylon zippers also work for this project.

Can anyone provide exact directions for making a brooch out a zipper? I saw one on the Coldwater Creek outlet website. Very cute! It doesn't look like it would be very difficult to make.

I found this on Chicsteals.com.
Martha Stewart had a gal on the show that demonstrated the crafts she does with zippers (made into flowers that you can use as a broach or a hair accessory). I can't find it anywhere. I went to the Martha Stewart Living website and it's not there. She was on her show the week of Dec 21, '09. Can you help?
