Glitz with Vintage Photos

The minute I spied the burlap pattern
on this paper I knew what I wanted to do

I cut the flowers from my scraps
and used wide double sided tape
on the back of a piece of burlap before
running it through my die to keep it from
fraying. Then I carefully removed the 
tape backing and affixed it to my project
 I cut the 12x12 pattern paper out in layers
of approximately 1 inch around the outside border
I then distressed all edges mixed and matched
to make the two pages and sewed them
together in layers. I always dry fit before I glue.

I too love this burlap paper ( we call it hessian in Aust. ) but have not used it for any projects yet. Your pages are wonderful and this paper is perfect for your photos, I love what you have created. xx
