Remember my past post on Kate Cusack's amazing zipper jewelry including her fabulous zipper flower brooch? Well, you can now try making it yourself.

New York based Annie Mistak has provided the Zipper Flower How-to on Martha Stewart (link no longer available) There is also a video of the taped tv episode (link no longer available) with Annie demonstrating the craft with Martha Stewart. It aired back in December 2008. She suggests these flowers can be applied in many places - as shoe clips and even dog collars!

However, if you're all thumbs and would rather just purchase these pretty and unusual flowers, Annie sells zipper barrettes, brooches, pony tail holders, headbands and other accessories on her website (no longer available). She doesn't use metal zippers for the flower pony tail holders because of the potential for hair pulling.
