DIY Paper Gift Bows

Hello everybody!  I hope you guys are well.  Did I ever mention that I love Pinterest?  Oh I did, well I’m going to declare my love for this website (www.pinterest.com) once again because it’s ABSOLUTELY wonderful.

When I saw this pin for magazine gift bows, I thought, “Oh my gosh, I have to try this because if it works, I will never buy a gift bow again!”  Guess what?

                   

It worked!  “I am never buying another gift bow again!”

I used a magazine page, turquoise cardstock, and the instructions from the pin above to make these pretty bows.  I have to admit that I was so giddy after I made them.  I know I’m a dork, but a very happy one.  🙂  So go ahead and follow these instructions (thank you very much to whoever made them) and make a gift bow yourself.  It’ll put a smile on your face and keep your hard-earned money in your wallet (every penny counts).  You’ll be showing some talent, making a gift pretty, and recycling.  A win, win situation.  Happy bow making!

Take good care all. Until next time…
