Looking for a simple way to make beautifully unique, handmaid, paper bows for hardly any expense?
Well, take a look at these!
I was reading one of my favorites, Little House On The Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder to my children, and one of the things she wrote about was how their mother never wasted scraps of paper (or anything else), since it wasn't readily available. After reading that book, I had more of a Ma Ingalls' mindset on how to creatively turn simple paper scraps into something special. While looking to see how I could reuse some strips of paper, I came up with these flower bows and absolutely love the way they look! And you can't beat the price.
I use scraps of wrapping paper, maps, cards, newspapers and magazines!
Get creative and have fun with it! You can make one big bow and attach a smaller one in front as seen below.
You can also mix and match designs for a unique look.
Here is a supply list.
And an easy set of instructions.
As a side note, I used a Premier paper trimmer with slide blade, that I purchased years ago. I definitely recommend a slide blade instead of one where the blade comes down because it is much safer to use. I can no longer find the Premier with slide blade on Amazon, but did find this Fiskars SureCut Craft Paper Trimmer Deluxe that is highly rated and at an affordable price.
Hope you enjoy making these and thanks for stopping by humble & BOLD.
