A zipper in my Hands AB

This is a zipper spread in my Hands AB. I had never put a zipper in a book before, so this was a real challenge. Closed, the page is made up of magazine images and various scrapbook pages. Click on the image for a better view.

Here I have the zipper open and you can see the page hidden behind the zipper. I used handmade paper to hide the zipper elements and wallpaper to fill in around the inside image.

Here I'm trying to hold both sides open and take a photo at the same time. It would have been easy if I'd only had one more hand.
