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!

Making Valentine's Cards with Ribbon

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!  🙂

    DELIGHTFUL set of cards Courtney!!!

    LOVE the pretty designs of each one and your delightful ribbon choices. THANK YOU for sharing your inspiration and top tips. Creating pretty things can be a challenge and I appreciate you letting us know that crafting is not always as easy as the finished project looks 🙂 I confess that wooden skewers come in very handy in my stash and I also keep itsy bitsy leftovers too!!!
