May Arts New Release Hop

I am showcasing the new 2.5" open weave burlap net- and it is so fun!!

For my first project I used the net across a cardstock panel & wove 1.25" white silk through it. This is a wired ribbon so it made it easy to wrap around the cardstock.

Next I wrapped it around a bottle for a pretty way to gift a bottle of wine. I used matching burlap string to tie up the ends & added an Artful Accent kraft tag. This would be fun to layer as well, but I wanted to show how great it looks on its own!

I love how this ribbon adds so much texture to a gift bag!

Last up I used it as a mask & spritzed an Artful Accent kraft tag with ink. I topped it with a stamped layer of vellum so that the pattern would still show, then folded a piece of the 2.5" open weave burlap net in half & machine sewed it in place with the vellum layer. I finished the tag off with more 1.25" white silk & natural burlap string.

As you can see, I really enjoyed working with this new ribbon!

  4. Wow! I would never have thought this trim could be so versatile! I like the ribbon woven through it and how you used it to trim the bottle and bag. It would be great for a masculine project.
