Getting zipped

Last week I found a zipper laying on the floor of the laundry room. Of course I didn't throw it away, instead thinking to myself "how can I use this on a project?" Well, I decided to try my hand at an ATC.
I only had the zipper pull so I started by creating a zipper strip out of embossed paper. I then attached stars to some coated wire and inserted them so that it would look like the stars were shooting out of the unzipped pocket. Oh, and just in case you aren't already horrified impressed by my use of garbage reclaimed materials, the backing for the ATC is scavenged from a MacDonald's Happy Meal toy package. I am the Queen of Cheap! And now I must go shopping .... LOL.
