The holidays are a time of giving and creating. Here’s a fun, easy, cheap way to make your presents stand out a little more.
YOU’LL NEED: Magazine page, ruler, glue stick, stapler, and scissors.
Choose your page.
Cut nine strips 3/4-inch wide. Then, cut three strips half its length, three strips cut off 1 inch, two strips cut off 2 inches and with the last strip, cut to 3 1/2 inches.
Loop the strip. Start off like this. When looping, make the strip long and thin rather than fat and wide. Adjust the loop as you desire and staple loops together
Time to assemble the bow!
Place the longest strips together and glue.
Same with the second layer.
And then the same for the third layer.
Your final product!
This is what they sell at the store in bags and you can make them at home for a few pennies. Each bow you make has its own personal touch of your very own. The good thing is that you don’t only have to use it for the holidays.
