In my sentiment, acquaint bows are NOT BIG ENOUGH. For a birthday acquaint today, I made the biggest bow that I could – no neatly placed bows inwards the corner for me, I comprehend the whole affair.
These are much, much easier than I idea to make too you lot tin alter the number of layers needed by varying the lengths together with width, each time creating a unlike outcome and style, and then you can either be uniform, or but make it up every bit yous get along [similar me].
Shall nosotros showtime?
Aѕ у’аll knоw, I dearest my brownish paper wrapping, and then I’one thousand going all out alongside a neon patterned tissue newspaper design, but you tin can use virtually anything to create these.
Start with the longest strips of tissue paper. I wanted my bow to fill up the top of the introduce, and so used this every bit my guide – the length of my strips were double the length of the present. I also wanted a fairly structured bow [equally structured as tissue newspaper can live!], and then kept my strips fairly wide, around 3 cm.
With each strip, pattern side downwardly, create a figure eight, looping each end too join inwards the middle alongside a staple/cellotape/mucilage:
To create the base of the bow, place each looped strip on top of each other until they interlock, fixing each in home [the wider your strips, the fewer yous volition need]:
For the adjacent layer, I cut my strip slightly shorter, creating loops alongside each again together with checking how they sat in the bow earlier placing on top the the base of operations and fixing inward place:
Continue this pattern, adding shorter looped strips until the bow has formed as yous like – this can be equally full or flat as your prefer:
To complete the bow, accept ane brusk strip, creating 1 loop as well as fixing the join to the middle of the bow:
Your bow is finished – y’all tin ready inward place equally it is, or add curled ribbons, create bow trims for a rosette upshot or create a few bows to grouping together:
And if for you, similar me, Christmas is the best excuse to get a topic of wrapping newspaper in addition to trimmings, co-ordinated in colour too patterns, y’all tin brand these out of spare cuts of wrapping newspaper, plainly or decorative paper too also fabric together with ribbon scraps. Endless. I’thousand also contemplating making even larger ones as decorations: I’ll permit yous know how I get on alongside those.
I promise you lot’ve had a keen weekend
