MAKE A GIFT BOW OUT OF A MAGAZINE!
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.
