Pin It Now!
Here's a quick and easy tutorial on how to make your own gift bows from patterned paper.

STEP 1: Cut 3/4" strips:
(3) 8"
(2) 6"
(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
               all together.

STEP 6:  Use sticky strip to secure the last loop in the center. 

Have a blessed & creative day! Erika.
