Wash and dry white placemat to remove sizing.
Protect work area with plastic tablecloth and lay placemat on protected surface.
Start spray of Fabric Spray Paint colors on a paper towel to get a feel for spray pump. Spray each of the colors in a random pattern on placemat. (Tip: Pressing pump halfway will produce a splatter effect.) Let dry 4 hours.
Cut ribbon and use Fabric Fusion™ to glue strips crisscrossing across placemat, gluing only at the edge of placemat. Refer to photo. Hold in place with clothespins until dry.
Turn placemat over and glue ruffled ribbon trim around the edges of the placemat. Refer to photo. Hold in place with clothespins until dry.
Tuck a Valentine or “love note” behind the crisscrossed ribbon.
