How to make a gift bow
We’re definitely in full-on holiday spirit over here at the 100LC headquarters! Shopping, wrapping, baking, the works.
We found this easy tutorial on the Whole Living website, on how to make your own gift bow out of old magazines laying around. It’s surprisingly easy!
Step 1: Cut the page lengthwise into nine 3/4-inch-thick strips of heights shown: Three at 11 inches, three at 10 inches, two at 9 inches, and one at 3 1/2 inches.
Step 2: Twist each strip to form loops at both ends. Make a circle out of the smallest.
Step 3: Secure the ends with a piece of double-sided tape.
Step 4: Layer and stick, starting with the longest strips. End with the circle in the center.
Cute, no? And it’s always so satisfying to reuse materials when wrapping instead of buying new!
