Burlap flowers are the perfect way to add shabby chic charm to your beautiful cards. They are so quick and easy to make and there are so many beautiful colors of burlap/heshan too for even more options with your flowers. We hope you enjoy today’s video tutorial on how I make burlap flowers.

I found these burlap flowers so fun to make! I just know that you will love them too. Simple and quick too. After making these flowers, I just knew they would look beautiful with our Vintage Digital Paper and Creative Tags stamp set.

I started out with my layers for my card. Sometimes to get my Mojo started I look at past sketches on Pinterest. It always seems to jump start my creativity when I have been away from crafting for a while. Today’s card is from an old PPA sketch. I found this light yellow pom pom ribbon and added it just below my IBS White seam binding ribbon.

TIP: To give your ribbon a distress look, simply daub a sponge or dauber in distress ink and gently brush the edges as you do paper. It adds just a touch more shabbiness to your cards.

I punched out two green leaves from an old SU! punch that I had back in the days. I then folded it in half and distressed the edges again. Our Creative Tags stamp set looks so good on peeking underneath the burlap flower.
