My favourite Christmas wrapping hack this year is paper bows! Made from the scraps of paper, left over when you’ve finished wrapping all your gifts. This is a genius and yet simplistic way to up your wrap game. Gangster wrappers at the ready!
What You’ll Need To Make Your Paper Bows
The best bit about this is that you won’t need any extra materials. Just a pair of scissors, the scraps from your wrapping paper. Make sure they’re not creased! And some sticky tape.
I’m a visual learner so I’ve made a video showing how I’ve made the bows. They literally take seconds to do.
STEP 1: Take a strip of paper and fold it in half
STEP 2: Cut out an almost fish shape. With the head end of the fish on the folded side. Make sure not to cut the paper into two pieces.
STEP 3: Take your fish shape and over lap the tail ends between your finger and thumb.
STEP 4: Cut 3/4 of the way up on each piece and slide them into each other.
STEP 5: Push the paper down from the middle and a bow shape should form.
STEP 6: Take a second smaller strip of paper and wrap it around the middle.
STEP 7: Stick the back of the bow down on to your wrapped gift with sticky tape. And you’re done.
