Practical Scrappers: Ten Things to Do with Burlap

Today the ladies of Practical Scrappers are getting creative with burlap!  If you've been on Pinterest lately, you'll see TONS of fun projects incorporating burlap and I even recently helped my aunt make burlap curtains for her greenhouse.  They turned out so cute!

For this project, I decided to give my burlap a bit of a modern twist.  I've seen it typically incorporated into shabby chic and rustic themes, so I thought it would be fun to see if we could make it a bit more pop :-)

By cutting the burlap into a chevron and backing it with other bright and bold patterns, I was able to make a more modern statement :-)

Please swing on by the Practical Scrappers blog to see what other fun ways the ladies are using burlap today!

Practical Scrappers: 10 Things to Do with Baker's Twine

It's Tuesday again, which means it's time for another 10 Things with the Practical Scrappers!   This week's challenge item is Baker's Twine.  This was a very hot item a while back, so I have a stash of many pretty colors laying around, as I'm sure you do too :-)

My take on the challenge was a pretty simple one.  I wrapped some cardstock to create an accent on this abstract card.  Easy peasy :-)

Please stop by the Practical Scrappers blog to see what create ways the ladies are using Baker's Twine!
