Happy Birthday, Mom!

Last Tuesday the Virginia Artists Group met at Handcraft House to try our hand at zipper flowers. We'd seen them on the blogs of Trina and Patty and decided to give it a try.

None of us could make one that looked like Trina's or Patty's, but we all ended up with something that looked very much like a flower. We discovered that adding leaves was a big help.
I'd gotten my mom this coconut candy earlier in the day at Yoder's Country Market, and decided that the two belonged together for a birthday treat. I am going to add pin backs so that they can be worn. I'm thinking these might be great package toppers for a Victorian Christmas theme. Hmmm... maybe if I start now I can make it happen!

Your lovely zipper rose looks good enough to eat Leslie, very pretty!!! It goes perfectly with the coconut candy :)
Thanks for the shout out too!
