Gift Ensemble with Gwen Studios and DCC

Hi everyone,  I'm participating in the Designer Crafts Connection blog hop, and this month we are partnering with Gwen Studios.  

Gwen Studios has amazing ribbons and bows in a vast array of textures and sizes.  Some styles include Burlap, Grosgrain, Satin, and Pompoms, so you are sure to find something for all your crafting endeavors.

Now that the lockdowns have eased and we are free to visit with family and friends, and summer camps are now open,  I created an assortment of items that  children can take with them to summer camp this year.

Why not send your child off to camp with a set of pre-made cards they can send home.  There will be no excuse as to why you did not get a card this year!!!!    Grosgrain ribbons are the perfect finishing touch.

So the cards don't get lost with all the camp gear, place them in a small box and use Burlap ribbon to create a pretty bow.  It's a gift they will love to open.

I, for one, can't go anywhere without chocolate, so I created wraps for several different candy bars.  One uses Burlap ribbon and a coordinating pre-made Burlap bow as a closure.  The other uses a Grosgrain ribbon wrapped around the candy bar as a closure.

You know they'll need to purchase something from the commissary while away, so why not create a fun little package they will need to open.  Wrapping the little package with Grosgrain ribbon adds to the fun in figuring out what is inside.

Finally, I created a gift bag and placed a few extra goodies for the friends they will meeting up with at camp.  Again, the Burlap ribbon makes a beautiful bow tied to the handle.

Please stop by the Designer Crafts Connection blog to see what the designers have created this month with Gwen Studio.

Thanks for stopping by.
