Love is in the air... and in the details!


Using a roll of vintage cotton twill tape

mini stamps, and a pencil eraser...

I created beautiful vintage ribbon for Valentine packages, 
or Valentine decor... print out any words for any occasion!

I taped together the letters L O V E to hold them together 
and get a straight line... 
I chose letters that were not all the same font for interest.

and cut a heart into a pencil eraser using an Exacto knife...

My ink of choice is StazOn ink pad, 
it is permanent and doesn't smear.

I printed the word "love" down the length of my seam binding then went back and printed a heart between every word.

I packaged them in 3 yard packs and added them to my
Etsy shop .... message me if sold out.

  3. The ribbon turned out so cute! Great tip about taping the stamps together, it gives it such a finished look on the ribbon.
    I'm stealing that idea!!

  5. Cute idea but that is not seam binding, it is twill tape.
