Vintage Tag with Bleached Ribbon and Trim

Hi friends, Linsey here today sharing a cool technique that will change your ribbon and trim in a most unique way! Have you ever tried bleaching your ribbon? It's really easy and fun to see how the bleach will react with your ribbon, creating a one-of-a-kind look! Here's a vintage-style tag I made with bleached ribbon and lace trim that turned out great!
My heritage tag features patterned paper, layered with a piece of Cotton Blend Printed Ribbon, then a photo of my Grandma and Grandpa on their wedding day. A piece of Tobacco Seam Binding was sprayed with bleach to create darker and lighter tones. Some of the bleach puddled a bit to make blotches and a very weathered look. It's just right for vintage, antique and heritage projects alike! A small piece of Ivory Crochet Lace was bleached out, then turquoise ink was sprayed on it. This also created a vintage look and feel that is perfect for my tag. 
I hope you'll give it a try sometime! Thanks so much for stopping by and letting me share my tag and ribbon inspiration with you! Until next time, happy crafting!
