I went with the square shape. And also over at JUGs http://justusgirlschallenge.blogspot.com/2011/03/just-us-girls-77-3d-challengeits-all.html it's a 3-D challenge to make a zipper flower. Well this is only the 2nd zipper flower that I have made and it just might be my last. My fingers just don't work as well as they used to.
This also fits the challenge at Creative Belli Blog http://bellichallenge.blogspot.com/2011/03/belli-challenge-think-seamtress.html
I was digging in my dp scrap box and came across these 3 papers that coordinated. Then on my work table I had the negative piece from an inverted scalloped circle die cut. The flower took me about 4 tries before I decided that this was good enough. The balloons are popped up with dimentionals and tied with yellow scrapbook floss.
