"Supplies for Easy Scrap Gift Bows:
- scraps of patterned paper
- newspaper or used wrapping paper
- ric rac
Scrunch paper(s) in the middle so it resembles a bow. Sometimes I like to fold my paper like a fan for added dimension. Layer scrunched “bows” of different sizes. Tie them in the middle with a piece of ribbon.
Layer a few more pieces of ribbon in the middle of the bow and tie on with same ribbon.
Wrap a long piece of ribbon or tulle around the gift. Lay your bow in the middle and tie ends of long ribbon around to secure. Finish with a bow, or secure a flower or button in the center. Voila!"
We've got a box of scraps going. How about you? Do you have a project in the making?
