all my fibers were bought at garage sales I payed 4 dollars for all the fibers and lace trip
I use stampin up reinkers to dye my fibers..
first I cut all my fibers and lace about 2 to 3 feet in lengh
Next I use this muffin pan and add about half a cup of water to each section..
then I start with the largest in size piece of lace and put 1 2 to 3 foot piece in each color
and let it to sit for about half hour to and hour again depending on how dark you want your color.
then I move on te the next biggest piece of fiber and do the same thing
I have found that drying your fibers on papertowels pulls out some of your color, so dont do it like I did here I have since started letting them dry on my craftmat
for storage I made a file on my pazzles for ribbon cards
then cut them out on my pazzles
punched a hole in the corner and put them on a ring added my dry fibers and here is the final project. I did a bunch of different colors so I would have colors to mach all my stampin up papers and ink. I now have 2 large rings full.
