Jenniesbarn has created a video tutorial about how to make hand-dyed crinkle seam binding. She says that crinkle seam binding is popular because it has a vintage look. To begin, she uses a mister to spray water on a ribbon strip in order to allow the strip to crinkle easily and allow color to absorb more evenly when dyed. Afterwards, spray the dye and tossle the ribbon at the same time. It is possible to blend different colors by spraying a different colored dye afterwards. Once the desired color has been achieved, take a paper towel and blot the ribbon dry while scrunching it to create the crinkle look. She uses a hair dryer to speed up the drying process and makes sure to not over-dry the ribbon. The completed ribbon can then be placed into gift baskets and scrapbook pages.
