A Ribbon of Many Colors - Seam Binding Ribbon

One of my MOST Favorite new products in Close To My Heart's new Spring Summer Idea Book is the Color Ready Seam Binding Ribbon (Z1732).  Have you ever been working on a layout or card and you don't have just the right color of  ribbon you need for that added pizzazz?  Now all you need is this one roll and you can have every color you ever wanted!

Once I got this new ribbon, I have been planning my projects around the ribbon just so I can color the ribbon! I love it!  You can color the ribbon with a spray mister (a cool effect) or dye it in re-inker. But the easiest and fastest drying method for coloring the ribbon is just sponging the color on with a sponge and ink pad.  I'm a quick project gal so I choose the sponge and ink pad method.  Watch this quick video below to see how I inked my ribbon and made a twisted flower with it!    Then scroll on down for a closer view of the card I made!




After I made this video, I discovered a much better method for attaching the twisted ribbon. I used a spot of  Liquid Glass (Z679) on my base and held down the ribbon as I twisted.  The Liquid Glass dried quickly and the ribbon adhered very well.  It works great with the twisted ribbon but you would not want to use liquid glass for apply a flat ribbon because it would soak through the ribbon and show.

Here is closer view the finished card in the video

This is a 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 card.  The base is cut from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.  I used Florentine paper and  Opaque Mocha Adhesive Gems
