Step 4

Once ironed, trim away excess burlap leaving an 8 1/2” X 11” piece. Download the LOVE template.  Place the burlap into the printer burlap side facing down. Print. It is super easy to add your own personal touch to this project by printing out a word or name that is meaningful to you.  Center your letters at the lower third of the page.  Use this love download as a guide.
