1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon (#122332 Crumb Cake)

“The rich textures of vintage style are all the rage in fashion and crafting. My customers tell me they love adding vintage details like ribbon rosettes, frayed and ruched (gathered) ribbon to their cards, scrapbook pages and décor items. If you are into vintage style you’ll want to get your hands on the 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon. It comes in a variety of colors and has a super light and flexible texture. Since it is so light you can do a lot without adding too much bulk. One of the things that makes the Seam Binding so much fun to craft with is that it has a loose weave that frays well. You can easily create frayed ribbon ends or pull the threads to quickly create rich looking ruched ribbon. Order your Seam Binding ribbon in the hottest colors like Cherry Cobbler, Baja Breeze, and Crumb Cake and start creating some vintage style today!” 

Tip: Create ruched ribbon accents by pulling a thread at the center of the ribbon to make the ribbon gather.
