As you are getting ready to wrap up your gifts, how about topping them off with a few paper bows? Becky Williams created a great little gift bow with a paper bow that we shared on Monday. Today she shows us how she made the bow.

Jillibean Soup Paper Bow Tutorial
by Becky Williams
I am excited to share a quick and easy tutorial with you on how to make cute paper bows. This is a great way to use up some of your scraps and add a nice personal touch to gifts as well.
1. First of all, gather your supplies:
-favorite Jillibean Soup paper ( I used some Pasta Fagioli, Soup Staples, Summer Squash Soup and Monster Stew. )
-stapler and/or liquid glue
-ink if desired
-twine, ribbon, corrugated and/or canvas shapes, buttons, etc. for bow centers
2. Cut strips of paper to make bow. For this sample bow I cut 3 of each size of 3 kinds of paper:
Cut 3 strips each: ½ inch by 12 inches, 5/8 inch by 12 inches, ¾ inch by 12 inches
*You can also cut strips in the same pattern and can vary the width/length of strips as well as the number of strips you use based on the desired bow fullness.
Thanks so much Becky for a quick and easy tutorial that we can do with our scraps!
Now head over to the Scrapbook & Cards Today blog for a GREAT giveaway! ;)
Have a good one!
