I started with the burlap bags from my store again!
They measure about 7 inches wide by 11 inches tall.
The red gusset is approximately 5 1/2 inches wide.
Three Vintage shade pulls
Extra bag for packaging if it is a gift.
First deconstruct the bags or cut your burlap to size.
These bags are laminated which gives the burlap body.
They also have grommets in them already.
Using three bags, I had six plain burlap pieces and three red burlap gussets.
The rope handles are not shown in this pic, but I will be using them.
Cut your embellishments from the red gusset.
I only used one piece for the two squares and three hearts.
My hearts were cut free hand.
You could look for a template on the internet, print it and use it as a pattern.
Since this is burlap, I thought a rustic heart was just fine.
I’ll be using:
Five pieces of plain burlap from the bags. (not shown here.)
Shapes from the red gusset, odd lot of vintage buttons, shade pulls, and the rope handles from the original bags.
The hearts are glued on.
The squares are pockets glued around the edges.
The rope handles become the “string” that holds the flags together. Right through the existing grommets.
If you look closely below, you will see the fringed bottoms done by pulling out horizontal threads for about an inch up.
I used buttons and pulls as embellishments. You can add anything!
- The banner length can easily be adjusted by shortening the ropes between the flags.
- Tuck cards in the pockets.
- With the addition of clothes pins as shown below, you can display your Valentine cards!
- Keeping with my packaging promise, I’ll use another bag to hold the item.
(The bags and shade pulls are available very inexpensively at Linens and Laurel.)
I would love to share your creations!
