The One With Custom Muslin Ribbon

My Mother-in-law came home from a trip to San Luis Obispo very excited about all the wrapping ideas she saw while she visited the the adorable antique stores in the area.  This lady LOVES to wrap, and I love to steal her ideas! She started making her own muslin ribbon using her favorite Christmas stamp, so I was VERY excited to give this one a try!

This was SUPER easy, seriously, give it a try.... you will thank me afterward! First gather your supplies, for mine I used: Peppermint Stamp Add-On, Staz-On Ink, muslin fabric (super easy to find at any of your fabric sources), Fabric scissors. 

1.The first thing you do is gather your supplies! I love how different stamps will make this project looks so different! Don't be afraid to add color either! 2. Cut a tiny one inch slit in the fabric and then simply tear the fabric length wise to create you ribbon! This is so fun, I love how it tears straight and ravels a little on the edges. 3. Decide what stamp you want to use and play around with different arrangements, are you going to make a pattern, use one stamp or several? 4. Star your stamping!!! It is so much fun to see it all come to life. I like an imperfect stamped image, especially for this! 5. Once you are done you can sit back and admire your work!..... No seriously don't touch that bad boy for a good 24 hours. Allow the ink to dry before you start wrapping things with it or else it will spear as you tighten it. 6. Sit with glee as you look at all your pretty wrapped presents! Enjoy! 

If you decide to give this a try, I would love for you to tag me on instagram so I can see your take on it! 

Happy Wrapping!!!! xox
