Vintage Burlap and Moss Centerpiece

I believe most of us tend to think of paper projects such as a cards and scrapbook layouts when thinking about using die cutting machines.

But when you begin thinking of incorporating paper die cuts with other materials, the use of one opens up endless possibilities.

When planning ways to use my Fuse Creativity System® to create a table centerpiece for a wedding reception, I gathered some natural materials that fit in very nicely with the theme I was working with.

Wrapping the foam block with the burlap, I pinned the edges down with old sewing pins I had that were no longer good.

Next, I applied a thick coat of Mod Podge to the burlap and pressed clumps of moss into it.

After adhering a length of sheer pink fabric to the front and back side of the block, I layered over it a letterpressed die cut that I had stamped with a sentiment from the Fiskars® Just Married Clear Stamp Set.

Accenting it with 3 small grapevine wreaths (found in the dollhouse section of a craft store), a floral pick, votive cups, and felt coasters that were also die cut with the Fuse, my centerpiece proves that die cut machines aren't just for cards and scrapbooks!
