May Arts Burlap String and Sweet Stamp Shop

Hi! Welcome to May Arts and Sweet Stamp Shop blog week. 
TONS of projects and inspo going around this week. Make sure you head over to May Arts to check out the awesomeness and I am sure there is a giveaway over there, too ;)

But first I want to mention really quickly a fun Birthday Bash going on over at Paper Secrets.

So for the good stuff...RIBBON AND STAMPS!

I have a layout  for you today using some May Arts Burlap string and SSS stamps. I looooooooooove this burlap string so much that I sleep with it at night. hahaha, JK! You can't go wrong with threads buttons beautifully and when you tie it in a bow it stays! I know's the little things.... ;)

I took a few step out photos for you to show you how I wrapped the burlap string around the heart.

First, put some Score tape on the back of the heart. (I just drew a heart shaped and cut it out)

Then, just wrap the string around it and adhere to the back. 

Flip it over and adhere to your layout and you are done!
I used a mix of sets on this layout....

the "love" on the chipboard piece is from the Sweet Victoria set and the pencils and xoxoxox" are from the It's a Man's World set.

Papers from Cocoa Daisy kit...include BasicGrey and Fancy Pants.

Your school themed layout is really nice. It's hard to do boy layouts, but you aced it!
