How to Make a Matching Curly Gift Bow

Why pay for a gift bow when you can easily make one to match from left over gift wrap. This will give your gift wrapping a sophisticated and professional finish.



  1. Take a large square of gift wrap and fold it in half, the exact size doesn't matter.
  2. Cut a fringe almost to the folded edge.
  3. Open it out again.
  4. Take a strip of fringe and run it gently between the edge of your scissor blade and your thumb to make it curl.
  5. Repeat with every strip.
  6. Roll up the whole piece of curled paper along the centre fold with the right sides on the inside. Secure with a little sticky tape.
  7. Wrap your ribbon around the parcel and tie in a double knot.
  8. Put the curly bow in place and tie another double knot.
  9. Trim the ends of the ribbon close to the knot.
  10. Ruffle it up to hide the knot.
  11. Be proud to give your beautifully wrapped gift.
