Here's a quick and easy tutorial on how to make your own gift bows from patterned paper.
STEP 1: Cut 3/4" strips:
(1) 2" from the cut portion of a 6" strip
STEP 2: Fold and twist each end and adhere with a bit of glue.
When you do both ends, it'll look like this.
STEP 3: Repeat with each strip. The 2" strip is just rolled into a loop and secured with sticky strip.
When they're done, they'll look like this.
STEP 4: Stack the 3 largest pieces and fasten them together with a small dot of glue.
Repeat with the two smaller pieces.
This is what you'll have.
STEP 5: Stack them up and a bit more glue. I add a staple right in the center at this point to really anchor it
