How to Shorten a Metal Zip

From the Blogger: "It's not always possible to get a zip in the exact length that you require for your project. Especially if you are refashioning. And especially if you don't have ready access to a well stocked haberdashery store in your local area. Methods to shorten standard or closed zippers are well documented. Metal open-ended zippers are slightly trickier to shorten than standard zippers. But it is doable. So if you ever find yourself in a spot and need to make do with what you's how!"
