(compliments of Canvas Corp. and Paper Issues)
**To be able to win you must follow Paper Issues' Blog and Facebook Page**


For today's project, I've used three burlap banners, mini clothespins
and two different sizes of jute cord from Canvas Corp.



I used premade letters from K&CO to spell out USA and then embellished them
 with glitter stars (K&CO) and star stick pins (Maya Road).
To create the pleated discs, I cut 2 x 12" strips, pleated them and then attached two
 strips together to complete the circle.  
To join the separate burlap banners together, I used a nice length of thick jute
cording (Canvas Corp); leaving enough of of a tail so that I could wrap
 it around my wreath for attachment.
I also used a smaller jute cording (Canvas Corp) and looped the ends at the sides
 of the bannerand attached with a small clothespins to the banner (Canvas Corp).  
Finally, a couple of gingham bows were added...I love the country feel of this wreath
that will welcome my front-door visitors this summer :)

Here are a couple of other projects that I created awhile back for an
Imaginisce & Canvas Corp Blog Hop

Okay, so not burlap related, but this is a quick and easy treat container that I made
using Canvas Corp. Skinny Cards and Sole Sisters Collection by Imaginisce!
