I am totally obsessed with todays project. It’s easy, fun and has so much versatility! Hand Stamped Ribbon.
Years ago, I probably had a stamping addiction. My sister and probably had hundreds of rubber stamps. We eventually parted ways by selling the masses of them at a yard sale… and I’m not back to buying rubber stamps. Isn’t it funny how things come and go — to later return. It happens with clothing too. Anywho, let’s take a look at how to make your own hand stamped ribbon.
DIY Hand Stamped Ribbon
Scissors or Rotary Cutter
Now that we’ve grabbed our supplies, let’s jump right in! Ready or not, here we go!
One: Cut your fabric. I used a rotary cutter with a self healing pad to cut mine. The length and width will be at your discretion. For mine, I made a 2″ wide and about a yard in length.
Two: Fray the fabric. This is optional, but I love how the frayed edges give the fabric a little more dimension.
Three: Stamp your fabric! You’re ready too add the design by using your stamps of choice and colorful ink pads. It’s always helpful to keep a piece of paper or scrap paper close by to test your stamp and ink pad before applying to your muslin. Ink up your stamp and start stamping!
Note: I tried this using a number of different ink pads and the Memento Ink Pads seemed to work the best and dried quickly. I have no affiliation with them, just speaking from experience. I purchased mine at JoAnn.
Before you know it, you’ll be done!
Isn’t that a lovely sight? Swoon worthy if you ask me! I like to wrap mine around manila gift tags too. A fun presentation for your handmade stamped muslin fabric too!
Beware! This is an addictive craft. They’re great for gifting to a friend or adding a little extra TLC to a package! Not up for buying all the supplies and making these yourself? No worries!
