Gathered Ribbons for Gift Giving

 Instead of using traditional gift wrap, tape and curling ribbon, have you ever tried wrapping the gift in in a pretty scarf or cloth napkin? Its like a gift with-in a gift!
Better yet if you add the gathered ribbon tutorial below!

* As a design team member for Gwen Studios,
I am provided with product to work with each month.

Supplies used:

1. Begin by inserting one end of the twist tie between some ribbon and stitch through and around the twist tie until it is secure. 

Layer your ribbon choices and begin stitching a simple stitch.
Small stitches on the front, large stitches on the back.

 When you are done with the stitches, gently pull the thread, gathering the ribbon as you pull.  
It's your call if you want tight or semi loose gathers. 
You will want the length of at least 20" of ribbon to wrap a simple gift. if you find you need more gathers to tie your gift, then add some more stitches. 

When you are done, end the stiches with a good knot and then cut the ribbon, leaving a half inch length to attach the other twist tie.  

That's it. A super cute and clever gift wrapping idea!

Marie Antoinette Ribbon Doll

 When I saw the new Sweet Shop Ribbon packs from Gwen Studios, I knew I just had to make up some ribbon dolls! 

As you can probably tell, I had loads of fun putting these dolls together.
The assorted ribbons are just so colorful and pretty!

* As a design team member for Gwen Studios,
I am provided with product to work with each month.

Supplies used:
Watercolor paper 
Butterfly die cuts
Stapler and sharp scissors
Tacky adhesive and glitter paint.

Make 1 copy of the paper doll body and 2 of the outfit of choice. 

Glue the body to some watercolor paper. Adhere the first outfit and cut out as shown below. 

Cut out just the top portion of the second copy of the outfit. 
Cut assorted lengths of the ribbons and trim. Notch the end with scissors to keep them from fraying. Staple two of the wider ribbons to the doll base.

Add more ribbon, stapling as you layer. cover any exposed staples with some extra ribbon at the waist. 

 Adhere the top outfit, carefully aligning with the face and head. 

Cut out some of the 'sweets from the ribbons for extra embellishments. Cut a butterfly in half and adhere to the dolls back for 'Faerie' wings. Add a touch of glitter as a finishing touch. 
These were so much fun to make, I could have made them all day!
