Wow, my ribbon actually photographed the color it really is in person. Amazing, it usually comes out looking blue. Seam binding bows are really in, but before I ordered any, I got to thinking, how about some plain old hem tape(not the iron on kind). Soo, I got out the Elegant Eggplant re-inker, put some drops on my non-stick craft sheet(how do we live without those?), spritzed with water, and squished the hem tape all around until it was saturated, scrunched it up and was going to let it dry by itself. However, impatience took hold, because it's kind of slippery and shiny, I took a wooden clothes pin to hold it scrunched and took the heat gun to it. I have to be honest, it smoked a little bit, but didn't melt. I'm very pleased with the result, I like the little bit of shininess.
These are the beautiful Autumn Spice papers and Day of Gratitude stamp set from Stampin Up. Very fun to work with.
