Bodacious Burlap!!!

Mornin' Yall! Aymee here bright and early on this Thursday morning. I hope all of you are having a wonderful day so far!!! Yesterday, I started to once again dig into the fabulous March kit at Scrapbook Circle. As yall may already know (LOL), I am crazy over the burlap that was included with the kit. It is just so functional and I love the texture! So while scrappin', I thought of another wonderful use for this scrappy medium...burlap lollipop flowers!!! They are so fun and easy to make! Plus super cute! Of course, I also had to include some of my new adhesive products from Helmar!!! I am now a big Helmar fan! There adhesives rock! For this project I used the Zap Dots (which are 3D double sided adhesives), Scrap Dots, and adhesive runner.

To make the burlap lollipop flower:
1. Trace 3 sizes of circles onto the back of burlap. Cut out.
2. Crinkle each circle into the palm of your hand several times. This will cause the edges to fray a tad and give some good texture.
3. Layer circles and attach together with brad. Fluff up the layers of your lollipop flowers if desired.
4. Attach to cardstock using the Helmar Scrap Dots.

Here is my card. I hope you can see this pretty good. I was up late last night and had to take this pic indoors.

Oooh, and another new (well, new to me) toy that I used on the card....Glimmer Mist! Man, how did I go so long without using this stuff?!!! I love it. I bought some during our trip to Gatlinburg this past weekend. The store I went to had a huge display and I bet I looked and looked for like 30 minutes! I just could not decide what color to buy. I finally decided on a 'Coffee' brown color. I figured I used brown a lot, so I would start with it. But I can tell you now that I am going to definitely be buying a lot more of this awesome stuff!!!

To show the dimension of the burlap lollipop flower...

Thanks for droppin' in today guys! I am off to scrap! I need to work on a project with the Cri-Kits gelly pens again and some other things. I'll share asap! Yall have a fabulous day, take care, and Happy Scrappin'! :)
Pin It!
