Paper Bows.

Paper Bows are quick and easy way to dress up your gifts.





You'll need
---------------
- Construction Paper
- Scissors
- Glue
Steps:
-----------
- Cut the paper like the shapes below.

- Take one end of the shape marked '1' in the picture and bring and glue in the middle just like the picture below.


- Bring the other end and glue in the middle too. So now you have something like this.


- Cut a small strip of paper and glue in the middle of the bow just created.



- Glue this bow in the middle of the shape marked '2' just like this.


- Cut two strips of the same construction paper to wrap around your gift and then attach the bow in the middle.





Linking this to these awesome parties here, here and here.

  1. Good Afternoon Priyam, What a lovely way to make a beautiful bow for a gift. I usually use ribbon, because I feel it can always be recycled, but I love this idea, I might even make material bows.
    Thank you for such a lovely idea.
    Best Wishes
