Do you love the recent trend about paper bows? You can make your owns!
1. Draw the bow patterns freehand or print it with the size you want.
If you draw it free hand, fold in the center and make both sides symmetrical.
If you prefer to print it, you can download a free template here : http://liagriffith.com/paper-bows-to-top-your-christmas-packages-hostess-gifts/
2. Cut out the three pieces of the bow and erase the lines that you drew (if any).
Round the bow with something like a pen (don't fold it) and adhere the
ends to the center. Then, add the other pieces and stick everything
together, as shown in the pictures.
For the origami bow, follow the instructions at this link (with a video) : http://www.origami-instructions.com/origami-bow.html
Tip: Thin paper works best (I used vellum, but it's not the easiest to work with).
