Once stuck down (about 15 minutes) I then trimmed the Burlap from the edges of the card and put the card into the guillotine and cut various random squares and rectangle. You could make them all even if you wanted to measure, but I think random adds to the charm.
Things have been a little slow on the blogging front lately as all my attention has been turned to my new studio. Hopefully, all fingers crossed, it will be ready for Christmas and be the best Christmas present ever!
So my Burlap adventures have been curbed somewhat, however I couldn’t resist a little burlap for Christmas.
This year I decided to go with brown paper packaging tied up with string (these are a few of my favourite things!). So for the gift tags I made some simple Burlap tags.
Here’s the how to:
Cover a piece of A4 cardboard with spray adhesive and lay your burlap over the top. I then placed a piece of baking paper over the top and weighted the burlap down to make sure it sticks. I used a box of champagne bottles – after all it is Christmas time!
I then took a stamp pad and red ink and stamped some stars and the word Joy on the burlap side of the tags. I also cut some stars from red burlap and using the spray adhesive, sprayed the stars and stuck on the tags. The stars also need to be weighted down.
Finally hole punch each tag and tie onto your presents.
Simple and beautiful.
