Make Paper Bows!
Cut a magazine page( or any paper of your choice) lengthwise into 9 strips, 3/4" 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" long.
You do have some paper that will have to be thrown in the recycle bin!
Twist each strip to form a loop at both ends and staple it in the center.
Shape the short strip into a circle and secure it with a glue dot.
Layer the 3 longest pieces on top of each other, spacing them evenly and securing each with a glue dot.
Add the next two groups of pieces, doing the same.
And finally, stick the loop into the center.
