Burlap Canvas

100_8047I 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.  music flowerStep One: Cut six or seven individual flower shapes with a die cut of your choice (I used the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die)

Step Two: Ink the edges using Distress Ink and an Ink Applicator (I used Vintage Photo)

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

100_8052To 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 ).

100_8055I’d love to see how you use your crafting supplies to decorate your home, so stop by the CURRENT CHALLENGE and link up your creations that use products from companies Cropstop carries in the store.
