I have no idea why I never thought of this one before. You know all those scraps you are left with after wrapping a present? Use those to make a bow for the top of your gift!
I cut my leftover scraps into approximately 12″ by 1″ strips. I then curled them just like I would curl a ribbon. I gathered them together a few at a time, and taped them to the top of the gift. I made three small bunches and taped them close together to get a nice poofy bow. The pin actually uses a different method for creating the bow, but the outcome is pretty much the same.
I wish I would have known about this one at Christmas. Most of the wrapping papers I used coordinated with each other so it would have been fun to mix and match the bows with different wrapping paper. I guess I’ll have to remember that for next year!
