Newspaper Bow Tutorial


This is a fast bow that uses up leftover newspaper ads!
1. Large Newspaper Flower- Find one large piece of newspaper or if you are using another medium something comparable in size (i.e. wrapping paper).  Changing the size of your paper will result in a variation of flower sizes.

2. Fold the large piece of paper in half vertically 3 times.  It should look like the picture directly above this instruction.
3. Fold the paper into thirds. 
4. It should be ~1 inch wide.

5. While holding the paper cut straight lines (~3/4 inch) along one edge making sure to not cut all the way through.
6. Place the cut edge right side up and roll up your paper creating a flower.
7. After you have rolled the paper use packaging tape to secure the bottom.
8. Turn the flower right side up and admire your handiwork!
Have fun embellishing gift bags, gifts, and more!
