Today I wanted to share with you this cool idea for making your own stamped ribbon!
For this I am using Tea Dyed Muslin, which can be found at any craft store or your local Wal Mart.
A stamp of your choice, this Christmas swirl stamp was purchased at Michaels.
The ink pad you choose is the most important item for achieving a good clean image on your fabric.
I am using Archival Ink by Ranger Ink. It is a waterproof, fade resistant, non smear ink. The color I chose is a dark brown called Coffee. Another ink I would recommend is Staz On Ink.
Start by stamping your image along the fabric.
After you have stamped your image as long as you want your strip to be, take a ruler and pencil to mark along the ribbon so you will have a guide to cut on.
Cut along the line to create your own ribbon!
I did try tearing the muslin, but had unsatisfactory results.
Now you can use your fabric ribbon to dress up presents, candles, bottles, and more!
Here I have wrapped the ribbon around a present.
For the wrapping paper I am using Kraft paper that can be found
in the packing/shipping department at Wal Mart.
You can add extras to make your presents festive and personalized!
The possibilities are endless for making you own ribbon!
I hope you give this a try!
