No Sew Zipper Flower

This zipper flower is easy and quick to make and best yet...no sewing! It would make a great hair accessory, brooch or maybe an adornment to a purse or bag. I will leave the final project decision up to you. But if you do make any of these I would love for you to contact me and send your pictures of what you made the flower into!
Plus, if you want to make this with your child but don't want to use hot glue you could totally use fabric glue. It would just take a little longer because you would have to hold the petals until the glue dries.



Supplies:

12" of zipper in two colors (24" all together)ScissorsGlue GunFeltHeadband

Doing Valentine's Doggie Style

It wouldn't be Valentine's Day for me if I didn't come up with a anti-lovey dovey card. My husband and I aren't the teddy bear romantic Halmark card type of couple so I have to think up of a card that is "us". This year I came up with my doggie style card...it's a little romantic if you are a dog person.

Click here to download a pdf of this card.

The card should be printed at 100% on letter sized (8.5 x 11) paper. Trim the card using the crop marks and fold in half. The final size is 4.25" x 5.5". I printed my sample on red card stock to give it a little more XOXO. The cards will fit in a standard A2 (4-3/8" x 5-3/4"), however if you do not have an envelope handy you can refer to my Recycled Paper Envelope to create one.
