DIY Gift Bow Tutorial

The Perfect Finish

Give your gift box or bag the perfect finish with this DIY gift bow. I got the idea for this project from Ann’s Happy Stampers on YouTube. If you live in the UK, you should definitely visit Ann’s website  and “adopt” her as your SU lady. She is amazing! Thanks for sharing the idea, Ann.

When you need a great present bow, there’s no need to run out and pay up to $5 or more, you can make your own really easily. Using just one half a piece of designer series paper, your project will only cost you somewhere around 50 cents.

This project is also great for that piece of DSP you really like but you just aren’t sure how you’ll use it. You can always make a bow (or two) that will wow the person you’re giving a gift to.

I’ll walk you through each step and show you photos and short videos so you can see exactly how to make these. As always, let’s grab our supplies first.

The Tombow muti-liquid glue is strong enough to hold it all together, and Stampin Up designer series paper makes beautiful designs without having to get out your paint can.
