I used a roll of vintage cotton twill tapemini stamps, and a pencil eraser for this project.

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

I began by taping the mini letter stampers to form Valentine words.

The letters L O V E are held together in a straight line with painters tape

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

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

The ink pad I used for this project is an StazOn ink padit is permanent and doesn't smear on most non-porous surfaces.

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

  1. clever idea! I also like the way you cut the eraser!!

    1. Thanks so much Patti! Desperate for a heart stamp LOL

  2. Okay, I love this. I have lots of those tiny letter stamps, but never thought of taping them together to make words. So. Many. Possibilities. Your ribbon is the best, though.

    1. Thank you so much Elis! You're so kind! I had fun with this one and I actually did this several years ago! It works for any holiday and birthdays too!

  3. Yes, I agree with Eilis! Smacking my head over taping the stamps together. I have all the supplies to create this. Woohoo!

    1. Have fun! Do it for birthdays, Christmas, whatever!!! Even Names for baby gifts!!

  4. I love this. I'm doing this for something I'm making this year. Darling! Taping the stamps together is genius.

  5. Susan, I love this!!! I've got to say, I'm impressed with that heart you cut out of the eraser...my heart would be covered in blood from trying to cut with a X-acto knife...the hubster doesn't let me use sharp objects!! :-) So happy to be joining you with this great group of bloggers for these monthly projects! Looking forward to seeing the rest of them! Have a great one! Hugs!

    1. Hahah I was desperate for a heart Benita! Thanks for all your kind words, everyone is so nice in this group I'm glad to be a member!

  6. Susan I love this. I would never have thought to make my own ribbon. I have the small alphabet stamps but using the end of a pencil to create your own is genius! Welcom to Ten on the 10th!

    1. Thank you Tammy I'm so happy to be a member!! This is a fun project good for any holiday.

  7. Great project, Susan. Making a heart from a pencil eraser is brilliant!

    1. Hahaha thanks Ann! Maybe not brilliant just desperate for a heart!

  8. This is one of the cutest ideas I've seen and absolutely love it! I would feel so special getting a gift wrapped with this ribbon. Excited to get to know you better and to have joined you today. Pinned!

    1. Oh thank you so much Cindy! I had fun making it and this group of lovely ladies is great!

  9. Susan, I have honestly never thought of printing on a ribbon. You are so clever...I need to start stamping or maybe I'll just wait until the next craft fair and pick up one of yours! 😉

    1. Kim this is an easy project and something you could do for any holiday or saying on it.

  10. Hi Susan! Such a cute idea to stamp the twill tape with the different fonts ~ and I would have thought to carve a potato but never an eraser. Brilliant idea! <3 Will have to make some tape and stamp some other things when we get my stamping supplies out of storage. Pinned a bunch of your photos. <3

    Happy to be an alternate on the 10 on the 10th with you this time,
    Barb :)

    1. You're so sweet Barbara! Thanks so much for visiting Homeroad and for you nice comments! Have so much fun stamping! xo

  11. Susan, this project is so over the top cute. I'm so impressed with the quality of your stamping. I tried little stamps once with acrylic paint and it was a mess. I should have tried the stamp pad. Taping the words together is brilliant. The ribbon is so useful. Thanks so much for sharing this project. I'm thrilled you have joined us on Ten on the 10th. Hugs.
