|Burlap seems to be a popular fabric right now. Have you |
checked out Ballard Design lately?? So- I did the burlap board
and needed to embellish it just a wee bit- so I thought I'd make a
flower to go on one of the clothes pins. I went to
craftaholicsanonymous to check out how she did it. She has
AMAZING tips on burlap- like how to get it to cut straight.
Wish I had read that post before I cut it for the board. Anyways-
so this is how I did my flower:
|They look like little peanuts :-) I made 3 of each size. The larger |
ones are almost the same length of the clothespin I glued them onto.
|My peanuts all cut out.|
|Ok- so this is where something went wrong. craftaholicsanonymous|
said to fold over at both sides in the center and glue in place....
well- mine kinda just got pinched in the middle. What can I say-
the glue and I were not getting along
(In fact- I have a glue burn blister on the tip of my finger now)
To make it still work and not have to start all over I just cut
a v notch out of each one and fit the next petal (peanut) into the V.
Which you can see the V in this picture. Glued them at the V's
and ta da. It still worked. YAY!!!! To finish it I just glued
one of the buttons from my button jar in the center.
Not bad for my first flower (esp since I did it out of Burlap)
