These pretty handmade bows are so picture-perfect, you won't believe how easy they are to create! Our downloadable pattern gives you everything you need to make bows in two sizes - just add your favorite paper or felt! This year, you'll have the prettiest presents under the tree.
Step 1: Cut pattern
Trace and cut the bow pattern on to your desired material; cardstock, wrapping paper, scrapbook paper and felt all work well with this technique. Keep in mind that because the bow folds over, you'll want to work with a double-sided material; if you use a patterned paper that is only printed on one side, you may be able to see the blank side.
Step 2: Attach bow
Fold the rounded peice of the pattern so that each end meets in the middle. If you're using felt, attach this area with hot glue. If you're creating a paper bow, double-sided tape will do the trick.
Step 3: Finish bow
When the rounded top portion of your bow is finished, attach it to the angular bottom piece using hot glue or double-sided tape. Then, set the small rectangular piece in the center and fold over so the ends meet in the back. Secure this with whichever form of adhesive you're using.
