Hello! Welcome to day 3 of the Homemade with Love post week! I just returned from a crafty weekend filled not only with papercrafting but crafting in general. It is always fun to use our papercrafting supplies for other projects that are fun to make as well. I created a mini burlap banner using mostly Taylored Expressions felt (because it is fantastic quality) and dies from Right at Home.
The banner is nothing fancy but will give some sunshine to a friend of mine who is going through a rough time. I started by trimming 3 rectangles of burlap. I didn't back the burlap with anything before working with it as its not going to be handled much once its hung.
Using dies from the Find the Beauty Die Set, I die cut various blooms and "leaves" from colors of felt. Once cut, I arranged them on my burlap rectangles how I wanted them. To attach them to the burlap, I simply stitched them using French Knots and a few stitches on the back side. I love the simplicity of only using French Knots! I also die cut the "hello" word die from Find the Beauty Die Set using black felt and used Glossy Accents to adhere to my middle banner. Once done, I simply attached my three banners to thick twine with mini white clothes pins.
Hope you enjoyed today's post! Make sure to check back tomorrow for another homemade project.
