How to color a ribbon with no fingerprints.

It’s Technique Tuesday! Have you ever needed a coordinating ribbon for your card or project and forgotten to order it? My favorite is when I need 14 inches and have 8. It seems to always happen. Instead of complaining or putting that project on hold color your ribbon. Yes, color it!

Take your metallic-edged ribbon (gold or silver) and color it! Grab your Stampin’ Blends and get to coloring. Do not grab your regular Stampin’ Write Markers as they will leave your fingers inky. After coloring with the Blends leave for a minute or so to dry. Then tie your bow and attach to your project.

(Tip: Make sure to color a little beyond where you need to cut so you don’t have an unfinished edge.)

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Joni 🙂
