Did you know that magazine covers can be curled just like curling ribbon? I'm sure you have tons of magazines around. Get cracking with the strips of paper, scissors, and glue sticks. It looks fabulous especially when some are left straight.
Clever thinking ~ Will definitely try this.
How did you put this one together?
Very cute idea thanksfor sharing.
I love this idea! I am putting some youtube.com video on here, to show how to go about it. This is so wonderful, and I really dislike buying bows, I love to make them like you do!
Thank you so much for this!
Approximate Time: About 30 minutes
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.

This is brilliant!
Thanks for that! You could use regular ribbon too and make them larger even.
I think I'm going to make these to use on gifts for my annual Christmas party! Thanks for the great idea!
