Hi Everyone, Sesil here today.  I can not believe that holiday season is here!!  During these times I am always trying to find bows for gifts but never seem to have them when I need them.  So off to the internet I go.  I found this great tutorial on how to make your own gift bows HERE.

This is my end result:

Cut you paper to the following:

3 strips at 11 inches x 3/4 inch

3 strips at 10 inches x 3/4 inch

2 strips at 9 inches x 3/4 inch

1 strip at 4 inches x 3/4 inch


Take the 4×3/4 strip and connect the ends to make a roll using Medium Zots to hold the loop together.

Take the remaining strips and twist each end and connect them in the center.

Next, take the larger three looped pieces and start layering your bow together using Medium Zots to hold the layers together.

Continue to layer the other looped pieces until you have a completed bow.

To adhere the bow to my gift I used a JUMBO Zot on the back to secure the completed bow to my gift.

Supplies Used:


Make sure to check back everyday for more inspiring creations.  Till next time, happy crafting.
