When I hosted the Michaels Hometalk Pinterest Party, I was given a little surprise. This beautiful crate of crafts was gifted to me from the Michaels Abbotsford team!
Stunned, I took it home and waited until I felt I had the time to super appreciate every little surprise tucked inside. And today was the day. Yup, I waited this long to open it.
But before going too far, I took note of the amazing burlap bow on the cellophane. Upon closer inspection, I noted it was truly hand crafted. Wow.
Three layers thick, this bow was worth blogging about! So without ruining it by taking it all apart completely, I think we can pretty much figure out how it was done.
How to make a burlap bow
3 different colours of burlap ribbon, in 3 different thicknesses
Top of bow:
- layer burlap
- lightly glue together the layers
- flip both sides towards the back
- tie centre with a pipe cleaner
- create a knot by layered burlap, the top layer being slightly frayed
- glue together
-layer burlap, lightly glue together
-gathered in the centre with a pipe cleaner
Such a stunning result! I could see a smaller scale of this on rustic wrapped presents.
So, come on back soon now and I’ll show you what’s inside the crate…
A darling distressed metal birdcage in a sage green… adorable!
A requisite cat photobomb picture… because it’s just the law here. Apparently.
I love this law.
Ohhhhh check out all those BRUSHES! The jar to the left was all in one bag… wow, that’s one great range for one package!
I also love using those wider white ones to the right so was thrilled to get a few more.
Check out that frame… I keep seeing it chalkboarded out and framing something that can’t be moved… or on a door. Thinking…
And that large crate? You know you’ll be seeing that guy doing something cool soon.
The crate was also filled with mini mason jars and 4 stretched burlap canvases.
Boy, did I get spoiled! Thank-you Michaels Abbotsford!
Well, time to wrap this up. I have some serious playing to do here…
What would you make with these craft supplies? I’d love some ideas!
