Make a Package Bow


In gift wrap emergencies when you've got the present but need some wrapping,
here's an idea for turning a magazine page into a bow.
There may be better ways to stick this thing together,
but I used what I had on hand: staples and adhesive glue dots.
Double stick tape should work, too

Cut a magazine page lengthwise into 9 strips, 3/4" wide.
Leave 3 of the strips full length.
Cut one inch off 3 of the strips.
Cut two inches off 2 of the strips.
Cut the last strip down to 3 1/2" long.

Twist each strip to form a loop at both ends and staple it in the center.
Shape the last, short strip into a circle and secure it with a glue dot.

Layer the 3 longest pieces on top of each other, spacing them evenly and securing each with a glue dot.
Add the next two groups of pieces, doing the same.

And finally, stick the loop into the center.

What i do not realize is in reality how you're no longer really a lot more smartly-preferred than you may be now. You are very intelligent. You recognize thus considerably in terms of this matter, made me in my opinion imagine it from a lot of various angles. Its like men and women don't seem to be interested except it's something to do with Woman gaga! Your own stuffs excellent. Always care for it up!
