"Pretty-ing Up" your seam binding, tutorial!

Hello! I hope all is well!

I have a tutorial to share with you guys today on behalf of 

Today I'm sharing how to dye, stain, wrinkle and tie a multi-loop bow
with Wild Orchid Crafts seam binding! 
I also added a small bonus tip in my video for small cute little bows!
There is a list of WOC seam binding I used with 
links at the end of this post!

I have had requests to show how I tie my multi loop bow!
Like here in this picture.

This is from my Pink Smash Book re-do!
You can see the whole project by clicking HERE with a video tutorial!

So here is my video tutorial, enjoy!

These are the ribbons I used:
(*These inks will stain your hands. Make sure you wash your 
hands well between using different colors!!!*)

Here's how they turned out:

This is the blue one I did in the video...

I've loved these ribbons but not always had the time to make them, in which case I buy them. If you have a project that you are using a certain color on and want that ribbon to match it, this is the way to go!!

2~Moss Green Seam Binding
3~Antique Gold Seam Binding


Other products I used:

"Mowed Lawn"

"Gathered Twigs"

Have a fabulously blessed day!
