I wanted to top off my gifts this year with a little something special and found this tutorial over at How About Orange for how to make gift bows out of magazine paper. I opted to use wool felt instead, and I adore how the bows are turning out!(Sorry Abi, all your gifts are being exploited for my blogging purposes!)
I used red thread to stitch all of my layers together which worked well, but I think next time around I'll just pull out my hot glue gun and give that a try. I'm guessing it will help the assembly of the bows go much faster.
And the best part, if the gift recipient really wants, they can reuse the bow on either another package, or maybe as a pin on a purse or bag!
