After my first attempt to craft with burlap, I have something to admit. It may not be popular to say this, but here goes:
Burlap and me? We're not exactly good friends.
It's messy, it's hard to cut straight, and though the roughness of it and your finished projects is supposed to be charming, I'm not so sure it's my style.
I decided to make an inital plaque, roughly fashioned after this one at Craft-O-Maniac. I gathered my supplies:
Yuck. I wanted to throw it away right here, or at least scrape off the burlap and try to salvage it. But I forged ahead and tried to add some cuteness to make it look better.
Yes- definitely better.
