Rainbow Love

Maya Road | Maya Road

I instantly fell in love with the Maya Road Classic Label Canvas album, which is one of the fabulous early summer releases, and wanted to add a pop of colour to the front cover!  I thought a handmade heart using  Maya Road ribbon would be perfect!  I'll show you how I did it...

•  A frayed edge is so fun so I first hand washed and then dried each canvas piece in the dryer.  Once dry I ironed them. 

•  Next, trace a heart on the front of the Classic Label Canvas album and cut it out, just inside your pencil line.

• Cover the piece of canvas that you cut out with a dry adhesive.  Adhere an assortment of ribbon to the canvas heart.

•  Machine stitch around the heart if you'd like...this will make sure the ribbon stays in place.

•  Insert ribbon heart into the Classic Label Canvas album and hand stitch around your pencil lines.

•  I added some Hanging Chandelier Trinket Beads to the front (I thought they looked like rain drops!) and a piece of Black Gingham Ribbon to the ring. 

Have a happy day,
