Stamped Burlap Banner-Tutorial

Everyone in "blog-land" seems to have one hanging from their mantle...
A cute burlap banner.
Not one to be left out--
here's how I made a quick one using stamps...

 The large letter stamps are from Stampin' Up!
{purchased a few years back}
I applied black acrylic paint to the stamp and pressed into the burlap.
 The burlap ribbon is from Micheals.
I cut lengths about 9.5 inches long for each letter, 
and pressed a 1/2 inch fold on the backside.
 Instead of a triangle shape, I cut mine to have two-tails.
 To do this, fold your rectangle in half 
and cut up from the bottom corner at an angle.
 Wrap pressed edge around twine/hemp and 
add a dot of hot glue in the corners to hold burlp in place.
 Or..secure with cute little mini clothespins!
 Mine is on my old window over my shutter - buffet.
October-officially Fall.
More on my Fall displays later this week!
