Stamping on Twill Tape

Stamping on Twill Tape
Twill Tape is the newest rage with scrappers and stampers. It usually comes in a neutral natural color and in many different widths. You can add it plain to a card or scrapbook page, or you can stamp on it!

Follow these directions to make your own stamped twill tape:

  1. Choose a stamp that will fit on the twill tape. A small word stamp works great, but other stamp designs work just as well.

  2. Using a dye based ink, ink your stamp and then press firmly onto the twill tape. Remember not to rock the stamp. If the twill tape moves when you stamp on it, temporarily hold it down with adhesive on a plain piece of paper. Continue stamping until you get the desired pattern.

  4. Attach the twill tape to the card using mini glue dots, tape adhesive, eyelets or brads.

  5. Attach Twill Tape to Project

  6. You can even dye twill tape by placing a small amount of dye ink (from a re-inker) into a small bowl of water (about ΒΌ cup) and let the twill tape soak for about 2 minutes. Remove from the water and let dry.
