You can make handmade flower from zipper in two main ways.
For such craft, you do not need a whole zipper, but half of it. Before starting work, it is necessary to unzip and cut off one part. Now one edge of zipper should be rolled around in a circle and sewed to an end of segment. The thread, it is used for further folding on same principle. Next you need to roll up your zipper so it looks like the "infinity" sign. We continue to connect other "petals" of flower and gently sew it with a thread. When all petals are ready, you can start to finish middle, without cutting off any part of zipper, but simply folding it in a spiral. Turn over zipper into a flower.
In this version you should use a full zupper length of 50 cm, and not even cut off the slider. You just need to stretch base, but not to end, and immediately form two petals, which are sewn with a slider at bottom of a flower, as if it is a stalk. Fold other petals in the same way, overlapping each other and creating a 3D effect.
