My cousin Jeanne has always been very artistic, in fact I don’t think there is any project be it a craft, or a beautiful painting that she can’t skillfully do. So when she offers to teach me how she has done something I pay attention, because I know what I am about to learn is going to be good.
One year at Christmas time I complemented the bows on the presents she had wrapped. She smiled then shared with me that she had made them herself. Then before I knew it we were in her living room and she was sharing with me step by step how to create these cool wrapping paper bows. I do not know where she learned this technique, and I would like to share this with you.
How many times do you finish wrapping a present only to find you have left over wrapping paper that will not be used? Like this:
You can get as creative as you like, such as using decorative blade scissors instead of straight edge, just be careful when curling the paper because it rips more easily. You can also take a curling ribbon shredder and shred the strips into fine strips then curl the fine strips in groups of 4 or more. And you can add curling ribbon to the center of the wrapping paper bow, or another festive item that will enhance your crafty wrapping paper bow. Happy wrapping everyone!
