    Where did you find that fantastic burlap? I’ve looked on the internet, and haven’t been able to find it. Please share!

    Do you mind sharing the brand of this ribbon? You’ve posted several fun crafts with this ribbon, but I haven’t been able to find it. I checked Walmart to no avail, thank you!

      My husband found it at Walmart at the beginning of summer in the seasonal section. I looked for it a few weeks ago to see if I could get more, but they were sold out. I’m thinking it was a popular item and sold out quickly and since it was seasonal, they aren’t restocking it. :(
