DCWV has now introduced Burlap stacks..can you believe it!
They are pretty and fun to work with...
(not for couch pillows for those of you who have seen earlier post of mine :)
So today I have created a tutorial for you using our little 6x6 Burlap stack
Aren't they sweet?
You will need to make each mini file box
2 - 6x6 sheets burlap paper
12- mini brads
1- label holder (optional)
bone folder and larger rounded scorer
When cutting your burlap paper on a paper cutter do it burlap down: then take paper out and cut again with scissors. This will make for a perfect clean cut.
When scoring your paper: place paper burlap side down on board, score once with larger tipped scorer and then again with bone folder aka smaller tipped scorer. Again making your scoring line almost perfect. Please keep in mind that burlap is rough..if you score to fast you will skip your track from the texture and end up off where you wanted to be:P
Cut box paper 6x6 square
taking ruler to help steady on score board score in
1 1/2 " all around then again at 1 3/4 "
Cutting out the corner 1 1/2 inch square on each corner and mitering the corners fold in .
Bend in edges as seen and punch desired holes and secure with brads...this will take a little finesse.
Cut another sheet 4 1/2" x 4 1/2 "
Score at the 1 " mark all around and the 1/2 " mark all around.
Fold and bone fold to straighten.
Trim corner on "ends only" and same! refold and secure with brads.
