Blogworld definition:

bur * lap  noun

1:  fabric of the gods

I actually think I understated it a bit.

Burlap is a wonder fabric.

You can paint on it….like my sister does.

If painting’s not your thing, you can make labels that go on buckets from transfer paper…

(total aside here….I think a tutorial on this has been done at least 500,000 times….but please, if you have any questions about this, just e-mail me)

Not up for painting or transferring….why not create:

* favor bags

* seat covers

* ribbon pillows

* letters (as in the alphabet)

* flowers

* banners

Or you could just use burlap to….

….wish someone special a Merry Christmas!

P.S.  For the purposes of full disclosure, I think it is important to reveal that I was not compensated by burlap in anyway for this overwhelming endorsement of its versatility and general fabulousness.
