Materials

  • Dora Zipper Pulls Printable
  • Self-adhesive laminating sheets

  • Scissors
  • Hole punch
  • Paper clips, ribbon or string
Tip: You can laminate the zipper pulls at home, or take them to a copy shop.

Directions

  1. Simple Pulls

    Print the Dora Zipper Pulls Printable on a color printer and cut out the individual tags. After removing the paper backing of one self-adhesive laminating sheet, place the paper tags on top of the sheet's sticky side. Place another laminating sheet (sticky side down) on top of the paper tags. Cut out the tags with a 1/8-inch laminated border. Punch a hole where indicated and attach to your child's zipper with a paper clip, ribbon or string.

  2. Shrinky Plastic Pulls

    To make "shrinky-plastic" zipper pulls, print Dora Zipper Pulls Printable on shrink plastic, such as Shrinky Dinks (from office-supply and craft stores). Help kids cut out the shapes and punch holes where indicated. Follow the instructions on the shrink plastic package to shrink the zipper pulls in the oven (about 5 minutes). Remove from the oven, allow to cool, and attach to your child's zipper with a paper clip.

Tip: For a more colorful zipper pull, use embroidery floss, not string, to tie on the zipper pull.
