Hi Everyone, hope your day is going well, thanks for stoppin by my blog. I love when you get a chance to leave a comment, helps me realise that you are out there. Today I have some photos of some Vintage crinkle ribbon I made. Its not sold in many places and when I found a whole reel of Vintage Ribbon in Cream I just had to have it, to have a go making my own Crinkles and Colours!!
If you wanna give it a go this is the ribbon you'll be looking for. Let me know too if you find it as I'd be interested in getting some more. I got this one in a shop in Kilkenny, but it was the last one and I haven't seen it since.
Anyway the first thing you need to do is spray your ribbon with some water first just to dampen it then use your coloured mists or sprays, scrunch the colour in as you go. When your happy with it scrunch it into a ball - love that word SCRUNCH! Ha ha. Put elastic bands around it to keep it scrunched!! Leave them over night.I wanted a darker pink too so I used Ranger Distress Ink, rubbed some on my craft sheet and sprayed with water and cleaned it up with my ribbon, fab colour and worked just as well as the sprays.
When you've left the ribbon in the elastics overnight, take the elastics off and unravel your ribbon, they will be still damp, so let them air dry, doesn't take long.
And you have beautiful Vintage Ribbon in the colours of your choice for your crafty projects! Hope you try it out - let me know if you do, I'd love to see what you all come up with or what you use it on. Oh and don't forget to let me know if you see the Rayon Vintage Ribbon somewhere! Thanks for stopping by......... Until the next time!
