No Sew Burlap Table Settings!

Welcome!
The Designer Craft Connection members were each challenged to create with Burlap!
Everyone participating was given a variety of Burlap Fabric to inspire you in more ways than one!

The inspiration for my projects came from the fact that our kitchen table needed some fresh table settings. Now that summer is here, we can afford some extra time to eat together as apposed to rushing around School homework and such.
I have 3 projects to get you excited about Burlap!
  1. Utensil/napkin holder.
  2. Rose place card/magnet.
  3. Table runner.
Enjoy!

 To make the Utensil/napkin holder, you will need the following:
  1. 3"x4" Linen bags w/ Jute  Drawstrings.
  2. Chevron Frog Tape® Shape Tape™
  3. FolkArt® Bright Red Metallic Acrylic Craft Paint
  4. FolkArt® Calypso Acrylic Craft Paint.
  5. Foam brush

Owl Stamped Treat Bags

I'm really excited to show you these treat bags I created using my new  Hoot Owl rubber stamp line from Sin City Stamps!

 These treat bags are perfect for notes, gift cards and ...treats!
 First I stamped the owls onto assorted patterned paper with black ink.

Then I used both regular and iridescent watercolors to add some color without taking away from the patterned paper.

 When the owls were dry, I used a fine tip sharpie pen to give the owls some detail.


For the treat bags, I used pages from a vintage dictionary. I folded them in half and glued the sides and bottom. Then I used pinking shears for the decorative edge on top of the bag.
I painted banners right onto the treat bags with the watercolors.
 I accented the bag with some iridescent water colors. I finished the bags with fine tip black pen for decorative detail.

 I trimmed my owls out and adhered them to the front of each bag.
Now I have the perfect party treat bag for any occasion or just to say thanks.
Thanks for coming by, I hope you like my owls. You can see the rest of the set here plus more of my designs.

I hope you'll come back to see me on July 13th-20th.
