Crinkled Seam Binding

Hi everyone!

Today I want to show you how to create your own crinkled seam binding. Smooth, flat ribbons are pretty of course but this crinkled version adds a fun texture to your paper crafting, wreaths or even sewing projects. Also, soaking the seam binding in a tea solution before scrunching will give it a nice vintage look if that is what you are looking for.


You will need: seam binding, scissors, spray bottle with water, baggie, craft sheet {or anything waterproof to do the spraying on. Even a sink will do}.


Cut a length of seam binding {a metre or so is a good amount to work with}.
Dampen lightly by spraying it with water (be sure that it is not too wet).
Scrunch up the seam binding into a ball.
 Stuff it into the corner of the baggie and tie the baggie shut.
 Let it dry over night and in the morning take the seam binding out of the baggie. Now, fluff up the seam binding and let it finish drying if it is still a wee bit damp.
Now your crinkled seam binding is ready to embellish all sorts of projects 🙂
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
