Hand Printed Vintage Valentine Ribbon

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

Hand Printed Vintage Valentine Ribbon on bottle

These are the supplies I am using for this Valentine's Day DIY printed ribbon:
1. a roll of vintage cotton twill tape 
2. mini stamps 
3. a pencil with an eraser.

I created beautiful hand stamped ribbon that can be used on 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. You can use a set of stampers all in the same font as well.

Next I cut a heart into a pencil eraser using an X-Acto knife.

My ink of choice is StazOn ink padit is permanent and doesn't smear. You can do it in black like I did or use colored ink, StazOn comes in many colors!

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

Love ribbon strips
The results are simply adorable!

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