Project Instructions

Step: 1

Wash and dry white placemat to remove sizing.

Step: 2

Protect work area with plastic tablecloth and lay placemat on protected surface.

Step: 3

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.

Step: 4

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.

Step: 5

Turn placemat over and glue ruffled ribbon trim around the edges of the placemat. Refer to photo. Hold in place with clothespins until dry.

Step: 6

Tuck a Valentine or “love note” behind the crisscrossed ribbon.
