I'm not about to take any more credit than is due me for this lovely pink gift bow I made from a Macy's magazine ad. I made it. That's it. I used an easy tutorial from the following blog:
All you need is glue or double-sided tape, a magazine and some scissors or a cutter. I have many times found myself in need of a gift bow, so it's nice to know how to make one that even looks nice. I wouldn't suggest doing all you holiday wrapping with these unless you have surplus time on my hands. The bow takes about five minutes to make. Nevertheless it's a fun skill to have up your sleeve.
