Making Valentine’s Cards with Ribbon
Good day to you! This is Court from Court’s Crafts here with a few quick Valentine cards for inspiration!
The first one is about the wrinkled nylon ribbon. I loved loved loved this color (this was my last bit of scrap) and wanted to show it off so I ruffled it. It wasn’t easy in the sewing machine but I used the end of a chopstick to push the ruffle under the sewing foot. You would be surprised how often I use chopsticks to help out my sewing projects!
I finished it off with a mini polka dotted ribbon that I just fell in love with. Must. Order. More. It’s darling. And the little heart balloon is held to the LOVE with a tiny bit of burlap string. Do I keep pieces around that small? Yes, yes I do.
The second card I made was using this super fun braided ribbon. It stretches in a really fun way and I wanted to “play” with it. It turned into a heart quickly and I adhered it down using a hot glue gun.
The last card I made was using scraps of ribbon. I wanted a little no-pressure 3×3 card and when I couldn’t find a background I liked I thought, “No problem! I’ll just make the whole background ribbon!” I love the result. the ruffled edge ribbon doesn’t show up on the burlap well in the picture, but it’s this gorgeous light pink that shows up wonderfully in person.
I hope this inspires you to grab some May Arts Ribbon and make some valentines! I send them out to all of my girl friends and I know on a day that is hard for people without “someone” they are very appreciated! 🙂
