Do you love the look of printed ribbon? Why not stamp your own? It is so quick and easy and adds a fun little touch to any of your crafting projects. The thing I love about stamps is that they can be used over and over. Use your stamps on your project and then use them again on the ribbon or twill for a coordinating look.
To stamp on ribbon, simply ink up your stamp with some good quality dye, solvent, or hybrid ink and stamp away. I suggest trying it out on a scrap of ribbon first. Some inks work better than others and you want to make sure that you can get a good impression with your stamp, ribbon, and ink combination. If you do decide to use Craft ink on your ribbon, be sure to heat set it with your heat gun to avoid smearing.
The next time you pick up your ribbon, take the time to look at it in a new way. You just may have the supplies you need already on hand to give it a new look. A great money-saver is to buy white ribbon and then dye it to match. If you have a great altered ribbon idea, please feel free to share it below. If you’ve tried out one of these ideas, we’d love to hear from you as well. Ribbon is one of those crafting stand-bys that we all seem to own. Why not have some fun with it?
