Zip This!

The Queen Bee 5 are always up to something! I showed you what I sent them... we had to make brooches and some kind of danglie thing or charm!
Now that all have received Patty's, I can show you!
I had always admired these flowers she makes from zippers!
Imagine how thrilled I was to find that was what she did for her brooches... I love this so much!
This was a great swap for me because I do like to wear pins!
Below are the not one...but two... charms she sent!
I love bird's nest charms!
And the other charm is an altered game
piece!!
I love how she packaged everything, too....
Patty, I need that bird rubber stamp.
Who is that by?

I still have three more packages to receive!!!

Fun seeing closeups of everything Linda! For your pin I painted the zipper pink ;)
The stamps are the clear cling ones on a 4 x 6" sheet from www.clearartstamps.com
You'd like this little sheet it's full of birdies ...Love warms every nest...You Make my Heart Sing...every little note are a few of the word stamps
I'm off the country for tea and I am wearing your felted flower pin:)

Who ever would have thought to make beautiful flowers from zippers? That's so cool!

You are in some seriously good swaps! (I think any swap with Patty in it would be a good one!) But I never saw those zippers! VERY cool!

Patty did SUCH a good job on her stuff. I really think she could sell those zipper roses in her etsy shop.
