Zippered Page

This photo was taken a few days before my Mom passed away. I have wanted to scrap this picture for some time, but I didn't want the journaling to be visible and I had a lot to say. I put a zipper in the page and covered the back with card stock. I wrote a long letter, tucked it inside and zipped it up.

I cut a slot in the paper 8 inches wide x about 1/4 in high, I used that super sticky red back double sided tape on the zipper and stuck it in the slot. I then covered up any exposed sticky with rick rack.

Very nice tribute, and the zipper is a great touch. Great idea to hide away journaling that might be very personal.

Love the zipper idea. I need to play around with some hidden journaling. Great way to remember the event, but yet not have everyone see the emotions.
