Sentimental Journey Basket

I am so lucky to be one of the 25 artists selected to take part in the May Arts Sentimental Journey Vintage Valentine Challenge.   You can see all the tremendous projects that were created by clicking this link.  We were all given four beautiful ribbons and asked to create a project that reflects Valentine's, vintage and sentimental.  We were also required to use all four ribbons.  I chose to make a paper basket filled with love notes.

The project is a gift for my granddaughter who is attending her first high school dance - The King of Hearts.  I wanted her to start her Sentimental Journey by having small note cards to write her experiences and collect her memorabilia for each of her dances.   Here are pictures of my project.

Here are the ribbons and papers used:

Thanks so much for taking a peek!  Please take the time to look at the absolutely fantastic projects the other 24 artists created.  They range from paper projects to clothing!!  Let me know what you think.


  1. This is beautiful! I love the paper that you used-especially on the cards. Any chance of getting step by step directions? I'd love to make one of my own.


I love to read your messages, thanks!! Sue
