As a Paper Source employee, my friends and family expect the gifts I give to be wrapped in a creative, interesting way. Here, I did just that, taking some great new holiday 12×12 to make this whimsical bow.
The nice thing about 12×12 is that most of the sheets are double-sided (they are also very inexpensive), and this bow takes advantage of both sides.
To start, cut the 12×12 into six even strips. Next, use a 1/8″ hole punch to put a small hole in one end of each strip. Then use a bone folder and curl the strips in different directions. The final step is to put all of the strips on a brad and fan them haphazardly in various directions. What’s great is that once the paper is attached with the brad, it is really easy to adjust the bow.
