seam binding ribbon

Seam binding ribbon was traditionally used to bind the edges of fabric to keep it from fraying or unraveling. But lately, crafters have been taking it to new heights (myself included). Seam binding ribbon comes in so many beautiful colors, and its flowy and delicate nature allows us to use it for gifts, scrapbooking, tags, garland and more. I buy my seam binding ribbon from a charming boutique in McKinney, Texas called Smitten, but you can find it on Etsy shops like Inspire Lovely, The Gilded Bee and AR Creations. You can also find beautiful silk ribbon (equally as elegant) on BHLDN. I encourage you to go forth and create something unique and inspiring with seam binding ribbon - and let me know how it turns out!
