These easy-to-make bows will be gracing a few of my presents this year. I’ve found a lot of inspiration in magazines lately. This one is from Whole Living. Scroll all the way down for the written step by step instructions and materials or learn how to make your own from the photo step by step…
Making a Bow (found in Whole Living)
What you’ll need: Magazine pages or any other paper material you want to use (you’ll need one page per bow); Scissors or a paper cutter; Double-sided tape; A ruler; A pencil
Step by Step Instructions: 1. Cut the page lengthwise into nine 3/4-inch-thick strips of the following heights: Three 11″ strips ; Three 10″ strips ; Two 9″ strips ; One 3.5″ strip
2. Twist each strip to form a loop at each end. Make a circle out of the smallest (3.5″) strip.
3. Secure the ends with a piece of double-stick tape.
4. Layer and stick, starting with the longest strips. End with the circle in the center.
