Ribbon Tutorial and Giveaway

Every once in awhile a new tool, product or trend will appear in the scrapbooking world and I will become obsessed with it. These obsessions last for awhile and then I move on to a new one. These obsessions (in a good way) are little things to rev me up.

My new favorite is seam binding ribbon - loving it! I use ribbon on layouts and cards but I’m not a bow maker by any means. I’ve discovered that this crinkled ribbon is forgiving . . . There is no messing it up!
It's so easy to make . . . you only need 4 things.

What you’ll need:
Spray bottle of water
Glimmer Mist
Seam binding
Heat tool

Spray the binding with water and then scrunch the binding together.

Then spray with Glimmer Mist - I used English Ivy. Scrunch the binding together again.

Keep scrunching and dry with your heat tool.

Note: Wrights seam binding will not work. I used Hug Snug from ZipperStop.

Leave a comment and become a follower and on June 9th I’ll pick a winner to receive 3 yards each of the following colors of ribbon.

English Ivy
Antique Brass
Candy Apple Red and
Black Cherry
