I found this super cute wrapping paper bow tutorial on Pinterest! If any of you read my Pinning it on Pinterest last Friday, this was one of my loves for the week. You can read about that HERE.
Here is the tutorial from Pinterest for making it...
Isn't it so fun?!? I might be totally out of the loop here, but I had no idea that you could curl wrapping paper! So I just had to try making this myself for some presents!!
My little Kaitlyn had a birthday party for her friend last week so my first attempt was for her present...
I love it! It really was so easy to make. One thing I found was that you have to hold each strip at the bottom really good or it will rip off as you are curling it. I might or might not have done that a couple of times:) Also the harder you hold the scissors the tighter the curl is. Just like when curling ribbon! I didn't like mine too tight so I held it lighter.
A side note: When we walked into her friends house, the first comment was about the bow from her Mom and her Aunts!! They asked me how I made it. They wondered if I had done something special to the paper to make it curl. I just said No...you just curl it like ribbon!! They totally loved it!
My second attempt was for a present for our family that is going under the Christmas Tree.
It seriously adds a touch of cuteness to any gift!! I am so happy I found this tutorial! I am sure I will be making this many times through the years.
