Altered Burlap Canvas Using Xyron Adhesives & A Giveaway

Welcome to our second day of projects created by our amazing 3 Birds Design Team using products from our friends at Xyron! Yesterday, we had an amazing altered wood letter by Juliana Michaels. We continue the home decor theme today with an altered canvas by Mary Ann Jenkins.


Hi friends, it’s Mary Ann here today with a fun little piece of home décor to share! One of the highlights of my project was using the Xyron Creative Station and 3” Sticker Maker, that were so generously given to all the design team members to show the many different ways this amazing adhesive can be used. I used the Creative Station with the adhesive cartridge, but it can also be used to make magnets and for laminating too! And now on to my project…

Find A Favorite Memory Canvas by Mary Ann Jenkins 3 Birds Design Xyron Creative StationI started with a burlap canvas panel I found at my local craft store, and added a bit of white paint and a few splatters of coral and teal mist.

I laid all the pieces along with the “Find a Favorite Little Memory” and green polka dot banner shaped sticker gently on my burlap panel to check for placement and see how it would all fit together.

Find A Favorite Memory Canvas by Mary Ann Jenkins 3 Birds Design Xyron Creative StationSince I am using the burlap panel, I didn’t want to use a liquid glue that could warp the panel, so using the Xyron Creative Station was the perfect answer to add adhesive to all the various pieces of papers.

I really like how well the pieces adhered to the burlap using the Xyron adhesive! A strong hold, without having to use a liquid glue. I will definitely be using my Xyron Creative Station for many more of my crafting projects!
