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!
