Tie Dye Ribbon Tutorial

The other day I was cruising around Amazon and thought to look for seam binding.

Now I have run across plenty of seam binding but never the plain, simple, silky, easy crinkled kind. And not 100 yards for $7!

Oh the fun I can have with that!

So bought it and have been dying ribbon left and right!

So, I do not have many spritzes & mists. It's the same reason I do not have chips or cookies in the house. I WILL EAT THEM. No, I would not eat the mists, but I would use them ON simply everything. I love that stuff. So, I try to make myself use product I have already on hand.

Since years ago I was a consultant for stamping company and bought ever single stamp pad color they had...hence I have quite a few colors I can pick from. And since I am also not big into stamping these days, they need to be used or they will get dried up.

Let me show you a trick. ;-)

Use a stamp pad to dye with! If you look at the binding. you will see where I have swiped three different stamp pad numerous times. Some colors have mixed and made others.

It gets better though. Almost as good as a cookie.

I then add all the swiped binding to a coffee filter and spritz with alcohol or a clear mist. Or an almost empty white mist with alcohol added.

LOOK at the shimmery colors run!

And a little teaser of how the dried & dyed ribbon works with a vintage-type ornament I'm playing with!

Happy HUMP Day!
