Hello friends and welcome to The Ribbon Reel #45 - HOME SPUN! For this week's challenge, my co-DT member Jeanne is asking us to create a card/project inspired by the photo, and ADD BURLAP and RIBBON.
I made a sweet homespun Valentine ensemble including a mini embossed kraft gift bag and co-ordinating card. I used lots of gorgeous Ribbon Reel goodies on my project today!
After embossing the kraft bag and kraft cardbase I die cut two brown burlap heart shapes from some 50mm wired burlap and set aside. I then used some lovely 12mm natural woven burlap to make two rose flowers - twisting and securing with hot glue as I went. I added a simple rosey adhesive pearl to the centre of each flower. After adding a flower to each heart I threaded a gorgeous Cream Pearl Decorative Stick Pin through the burlap - I love how it reminds me of cupids arrow!!
I finished with die cut doilies, some rose seam binding, brown button twine, buttons and a hand stamped label.
Here's another shot of the little chocolate filled kraft gift bag...
and the bag and card together...
