Don't faint anyone, but I've tidied my desk - well actually it was just the overflow desk I didn't want to be too ambitious.
Just some tools, flowers and magazines on there at the moment. Oh, and a little pile of badges that need sewing for the kids.

I've just been experimenting with these zipper flowers.
I've seen them about a bit lately and thought I would have a try.
I've used charity shop zips but if you wanted to make bigger flowers you can get a yard of zip from Maya Road for about £1.99.

That's it from me today. Check out the other WOYWWers at Julia's blog.

Zips for flowers - Wow. Maybe I should not have just thrown out all my "useless" zips away the other week. Hopefully, they will end up with someone as creative as you and find a new life as a thing of beauty.
Loving the zipper flowers!

I've done these too, infact if you look on my WOYWW post today you should see a few on my table. I love them and think they're really effective - a bit bulky for cards and scrapbook pages though!!
happy WOYWW

Yes, I also saw the zipper flowers on the net - they are most effective and should keep the recipient of your cards really quiet (think about it)

Been poorly so short & sweet this week
