How to get Creative with Tie Dye Scrapbook Paper

Posted by Olivia Sum on

Tie Dye is a modern term which was invented in America in the mid-1960`s.  The process of tie dye consists of pleating, twisting, folding or crumpling fabric.  You then bind with string or rubber bands to make the pattern in the middle before adding the dye. 

Tie dye is characterised by the use of bright, saturated primary colours and bold patterns.  If you are looking to make a flamboyant, retro, stylish statement this is the design for you.  With the help of some arts and crafts equipment such as tie dye scrapbook paper which you will find on you can turn a dull boring space into something much more becoming on the eye.
