I have a little mid-week inspiration for you today….. a burlap canvas decor decor project! I’m also sharing a mini tutorial I use for making layered 3D flowers. Cropstop currently has both stretched burlap and natural canvases in 4 x 4 and 6 x 6 sizes. Both are convenient for making pretty pieces of home decor. Step One: Cut six or seven individual flower shapes with a die cut of your choice (I used the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die)
Step Three: Poke a tiny brad through the center of each and layer your inked flowers.
Step Four: Beginning with the top layer, fold each layer up and into the center
Step Five: Continue folding layers till they are all smooshed together
Step Six: Carefully unfold your flower, fluff, and shape
To create my piece, I started with a 6 x 6 canvas and ran a strip of twine from the Cream Burlap Trim (Petaloo) set in a zig zag pattern across the front. Next I attached leaves to my flowers (Flower petals Sizzix Die) and glued them in the corners. I added some mini clothespins with sentiments (stamped in Ground Espresso) from the Inspirational Stamp Set (Tim Holtz ).
