Make Burlap Tape

 Did you know that you can make your own burlap tape?  Plus you can make it in any width you would like.  Awesome right?  I thought this was an amazing idea for some fun present wrapping but you could use this burlap tape anywhere you would like.  It is all possible with the help of a Xyron.  I was asked to review a machine and compensated for my participation.  However all projects and opinions are my own.
