Meredith MacRitchie shares her technique to add color to plain seam binding. This is a great way to get a ribbon color that matches exactly to your project.
1) Here are the supplies needed to dye your own seam binding quickly, and easily; Rayon Seam Binding, Dye Ink (you can use multiple shades), Alcohol in a spray bottle, and your craft mat.
2) After you cut your length of seam binding, lay it in a bundle on your craft mat, and press your lighter shade ink pad directly to the seam binding, in a random fashion.
3) Next, stamp some ink directly onto the craft mat, and spray it with your alcohol.
4) Use your seam binding to absorb the diluted ink, moving the binding around to get good coverage - you don't need to get even coverage - something more random looks more shabby! The diluted shade will help blend the ink you applied directly earlier.
5) Do the same thing with your darker shade.
7) Because we used alcohol to dilute the ink, your seam binding will dry very quickly. I usually dye mine at the start of my project, and by the time I am assembling my card, the binding is dry.
8) You can see the finished seam binding tied onto my card, which I created using the Mini Bingo Card, as well as the tiny little "Be Mine" sentiment found in the heart images of Little Red Wagon.
