Botanical Tea Pop Up Birthday Card with Natural Burlap String Bow
Hello, Ribbon Lovers! Natural Burlap String is one of my crafting staples! I love it and use it so much that I purchase it by the spool. It’s a great way to add texture to a card design. It looks fabulous when threaded through a button. Wrap it around a card to create a border. Tie a little loopy string bow and add it to a bow cluster. The possibilities are endless! I used Natural Burlap String to make the fluffy string bow on this Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Pop Up Birthday Card, and I just love the way it turned out.
Burlap string comes in a rainbow of colors, but I love the rustic feel of this big, loopy Natural Burlap String Bow. It really sets off the soft pinks and blues in the paper collection.
The inside of the card has a lovely pop up gift card holder!
If you’ve never made a pop up card before, this is quite possibly the easiest style to start with. I have a video tutorial HEREwhere you can watch and learn how to make it. The papers I use are different, but the steps are the same.
The best thing about Natural Burlap String, apart from it’s amazing versatility, is that it is also incredibly affordable. You can’t beat that!
