Thanks for all the kind words about those Love is Brewing coffee themed invites I shared last week. So far the feedback from the guests have been great! Hopefully they are even more excited to come celebrate my sweet friends happiness now.
Several commenters asked how I got the text on the burlap bags so I figured I'd devote a post to it. It was very simple to do and the same technique could be used in lots of projects for home decor, gift making, etc.
I ordered the bags online. Thankfully they came in the perfect size because I definitely do not have the skills or patience to hand sew 100 tiny bags :)
I used my handy Silhouette SD to cut a stencil into some overhead transparency paper. (If you don't have one of these yourself, you could hand cut the stencil or do a reverse process using letter stickers you can find at any hardware store.)
Using spray adhesive on the back of the stencil, I got it nice and tight to the fabric.
Once that was done, I pulled out some simple spray paint (yes, the cheapest stuff they had in the store) and gave it a few short blasts.
When it was dry, I peeled the stencil off. Voilà.
See, I told you it was simple!
