Hand Printed Vintage Valentine Ribbon

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.

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

  1. Super cute Susan. Good idea cutting down an eraser - only your creative mind would think of such a cool idea.

  2. You are the Queen of little details!!! I love it! Thanks for sharing!

  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!!

  4. That's what the pencil eraser is for! Love it!
    Homa Style is having a Valentine link party going on now. I would love it if you linked up your Valentine ribbon.

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

    1. Ok Lanie, good to know, I changed the text, thank you.
