Hand Embossed Velvet Ribbon

I have taken a fancy to embossing velvet pretty! You can use so many different patterns, this one is a damask design.....................You can also use letters to make a monogrammed ribbon.......perfect for wedding albums and special pieces.
Simply take a rubber stamp with a design of your choice and a good quality velvet ribbon ( I happen to sell them in my store, fancy that! ) Heat an iron to the hot setting, place the ribbon right side down over the rubber stamp and press with the iron for about 20-30 seconds. You can also spray the velvet with a water mist, it gives a slightly deeper embossing.
Send me a picture of some you have made, I`d love to see them!
