I have used these instructions for a number of bows, including bows for door wreaths:
Turn paper muffin liners into cute decorations shaped like bowties. This is a page about making muffin liner gift bows.
Use pipe cleaners to make cute bows on their own or incorporate them into a more traditional bow by substituting the pipe cleaner for the ribbon tie in the center of the bow.
No need to buy bows or ribbons to decorate a gift. Use any wrapping paper and a pair of scissors to make a matching curly bow for a lovely finishing touch.
This is a page about making bows from magazines. The covers and pages of magazines can be recycled into colorful gift bows.
