Printing on Burlap

I am addicted to roosters. I think being a country girl and living on a farm for so many years will do that to you. I have roosters in my kitchen and my bathroom. Yes, in my bathroom right next to Elvis. (More on that later) So, I just had to make another rooster project to set in the kitchen using burlap. Burlap and country just go together.
All you need is burlap, freezer paper, scissors, 8.4 x 11 card stock or copy paper, ink jet printer and hot iron.
Cut a piece of burlap and freezer paper using the cardstock or copy paper as a guide. Then iron the burlap on the SHINY side of the freezer paper until its held together very well. Especially around the edges
Make sure there is no burlap hanging over the edge or and strings hanging out. Just cute them off.
Take all paper out of the printer and depending on your printer, lay the burlap in the paper tray. Print.
I love how this looks in a red frame. So country.

    Am most definitely trying it out.

    However hope you won't mind if I borrow your amazing ideas for commercial purposes.

    Especially during this covid error.
