Turn baby scribbles into bows (Gift Bow Tutorial) Benjamin and Lyla both love to color, but right now all they do is scribble. I have stacks of sheets that Benjamin has colored all over and I was hoping to do something fun with them. I saw this tutorial at Smile Monsters for making your own paper gift bows and I immediately wanted to turn the scribbles into bows. These are such a great idea for wrapping presents (especially for the grandparents). Lyla helped color with markers. First, cut the paper into strips 8 and a half inches long and 3/4 of an inch wide. Next, fold the strip in half to mark the middle. Try to keep the ends somewhat pointy. Once you have made all of these figure 8 petals, start gluing them one at a time. Next, add the last two folded up inside of the others. For thicker paper (like regular printer paper or scrapbook paper) it seems to work well to use only 5 or 6 petals. DIY newspaper gift bows

BTW….I’ve seen this idea before of the web, but can’t find the original source. This idea origionally came from an article at childcentralstation – go check it out! By the way I’m still addicted to pinterest. Sorry things are still a bit quiet around here…another month and I will be posting more regularly again.
