Burlap Ribbon Treat bags-May Arts/Stampendous

Welcome to the May Arts Stampendous Swap.  For my project I created these little treat bags made from the 4" burlap ribbon  I took a 12" piece of ribbon and pulled out the wire, sew down 1/2" at each end, fold in half, sew the side seams.  Voila you now have a little burlap bag :)  String ribbon along the top to tie it shut and you are done.  Decorate as desired
I used one of the stamps from the Jumbo Pear set and stamped directly on the burlap.  Stampendous also sent this lovely mixed media kit that had glitters and some flock and chips along with some chipboard and adhesive so I choose the heart- applied the adhesive and some of the fine glitter and I was good to go.  Layer the ribbons and the glitter heart and you are done.

May Arts ribbons used
368 Faux Linen
398 4" Burlap
424-1/8" diag stripe
A478-Adhesive Scroll
And the lovely Sequin Adhesive hearts
