How to Make an Easy Bow (Day #3)

December 4th, 2010

We love ribbon. And more often than not, we have tons of SCRAPS of ribbon left over from various projects.  Well, don’t throw those away because now you can make a very quick and easy “bow” or gift topper!  This is a favorite of ours from last year so we wanted to share it here:

We hope you enjoyed the first 3 days! If you missed any, here they are:
Day #1: How to Make Pomegranate Salad
Day #2: The Technique of Paper Quilling (Make handmade cards!)
Day #3: How to Make an Easy Bow – Gift Topper

We’ll “see” you next Monday evening! Each day of the 12 days will be posted Mondays-Fridays. Have a nice weekend!

But they are just sitting in the bottom of my ribbon box, the pile growing ever larger!!! tee hee! Thanks so much for the idea. I am new to your blog and am completely addicted!

    I love it when things that should be obvious AREN’T! The rick rack, bell and “fluff” (that I saw in the photos) are really what make the effect. Thanks for sharing that!

    What a fantastic way to use up all those little ribbon scraps!! I’ve got lots and lots, and have been wondering what could I use them for. You gals are so amazingly clever!! I guess this process could be used for making hair bows too!! How fun!! I love the DIY Dish!!

    Happy Holidays to you both!

    Thanks for the reminder about your bow. I had forgotten all about this easy bow. I saw it last year on your show. I got so many wonderful comments from your bow.

    Wish I had kept all those little shorty ends of ribbon I have been throwing away – I’ll start collecting them again so I can make these darling bows. Thanks!
