How to Make Your Own French Stamped Ribbon

A great find at the thrift store this weekend.

Cotton seam binding

It's soft, it's light and beautiful! 

It feels like a cotton sheet....And best of all, it holds it's shape and doesn't fray!

I had a fun idea!

 I used Distress Ink ...

and French stamps to stamp all along the ribbon, then let it dry.

I think I like this one the best...

 I wrapped them up in 10' bolts 

A great ribbon for packages, scrapbooks or crafts
