How to Make a Gift Bow

Ever wonder how to make a gift bow?  It's actually pretty easy.  I found a picture tutorial on Pinterest and I just followed the directions.  I wanted to link to it in my post but when I clicked on the post, it didn't lead me to a website.  So, I decided to make my own tutorial for you to follow.  I used some magazine paper and Scotch tape to make my bow.  Be sure to choose the thicker pages of a magazine, the ones that have the colorful ads one them.  I tried using both regular magazine paper and the thicker paper and it was MUCH easier with the thicker paper.  Of course, you can use any paper you like-- If you love picking out printed papers from the craft store as much as I do, you could get some fun printed card stock for your bow.  Have fun with it and experiment. Making a bow start to finish only took me about 10 minutes.
