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

Hand Printed Vintage Valentine Ribbon



I am using a roll of vintage cotton twill tape, mini stamps, and a pencil eraser for this project.

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

I began by taping together mini letter stampers. The letters 
L O V E held together and get a straight line.

I chose letters that were not all the same font for interest.

Next I 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.

The results are simply adorable!

I packaged them in 3 yard packs and sold them all. 


Happy Valentine's Day!

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