I {heart} Burlap!

So it's been a slow crafty week for me...
I have LOTS of ideas but not much time to get them done!!!
I found this burlap banner idea on Etsy.
I've never worked with burlap so I had no idea what to expect...
I can see a million flaws but I look forward to making more and improving each time.

I used my Cricut to make stencils for the letters and the hearts.
Instead of paper (it gets too soggy with paint) I cut the images out of vinyl.
The vinyl stuck to the burlap too so I was able to get crisper paint lines.

Because I don't sew, I used Stitch Witchery to bond the burlap to the ribbon. 
It seems to hold really well and was very easy to use!

I have more burlap crafty ideas coming soon so stay tuned!
