Magazine Gift Bows

Create a package bow from a colorful magazine page. A great way to recycle your magazines and will work for any occasion.

Approximate Time: About 30 minutes

Supplies:

  • magazine page
  • ruler
  • ink pen
  • scissors
  • stapler and staples
  • glue dots or hot glue gun and glue sticks

Instructions:

Cut a magazine page lengthwise into 9 strips that are 3/4 and wide. Leave 3 of the strips full length. Cut one inch off 3 of the strips. Cut two inches off 2 of the strips. Cut the last strip down to 3 1/2 and long. Twist each strip to form a loop at both ends and staple it in the center (see photo).

Shape the last, short strip into a circle and secure it with a glue dot or hot glue. Layer the 3 longest pieces on top of each other, spacing them evenly and securing each with a glue dot or hot glue. Add the next two groups of pieces, doing the same. And finally, glue the loop into the center.

Thanks for that! You could use regular ribbon too and make them larger even.
