Woven Ribbon Valentine's Card

Hi Everyone

I have the first of my Valentine's Cards ideas to share today. I have used the older Dear Lizzy Collection from American Crafts as it's bright and fresh and has some pink in it too. I don't generally use a lot of pink in my projects, so Valentine's colors are hard to come by!

I took some of the ribbonsand wove them into a piece about 4 inches square, used fabric mod podgeon the back to glue it all together and then when it was dry I cut out the heart shape.

These chipboard pieces are not actually letters but I was able to spell out the word "LOVE" with a bit of imagination and creative cutting!

To decorate I used some ribbonfrom the Dear Lizzy collection, a couple of striped and plainbuttons and a sparkletand pearlsfrom Kaisercraft.

I realize I have not given any directions as to how I did the weaving, but it was quite complicated and I would like to try it another couple of times before I explain how to do it! I am sure there are easier ways that the ones I tried - so hopefully I will come up with a tutorial in the future..

Please post a comment with any questions.
