Fiskars Stamped Burlap Vase
Beautiful way to present flowers!
- Time:1-1/2 hours
1Find a vase that fits inside your oatmeal cannister. Mark your cutting line by placing a rubber band around the oatmeal canister evenly to mark.
2Remove the oatmeal canister's label since burlap has a loose weave which can reveal colors from beneath. Use the craft knife to cut along the line. Sand any uneven edges.
3Pull one string (the burlap will gather as shown) and gently work the string out. Repeat with the neighboring string. (This is a good way to cut burlap with minimal unraveling at your desired cutting measurement.)
4Cut down the center of the removed strings.
5Press the stamp into an ink pad and then onto the burlap. Be sure to protect your work surface beneath as some ink will bleed through the burlap. If using acrylic paint instead of stamping ink, paint the color directly onto the stamp as shown and press into burlap. (Tip: cut a scrap piece of burlap to play around with stamping different images first.)
6Cover the canister or can with Mod Podge and press the burlap securely around. Allow to dry fully and trim off any excess. You can leave the edges raw or adhere ribbon as I have done at the bottom for a more tailored look.
7Use the Fiskars Fuse Creativity System to ink, deboss and cut tag all in one pass or perform these tasks separately. Add sentiment to tag. Punch a hole into the tag to string onto vase to complete. Tie to vase with jute.
