Paper bow.

Since I don’t have any baby shower appropriate bows or ribbons I decided to make a paper bow.

I started with a leftover piece of wrapping paper.

Cut it to the right size, and folded it in half.

I cut strips between 1/2 and 1 inch wide the whole way across the paper leaving about 1 inch from the end of the cut to the fold.

Then I curled them with a scissors the same as curling a ribbon.

After curling I cinched along the fold and gathered it, and attached it to the package.

This is a great way to use leftover pieces of wrapping paper and to make bows if you want them in a pinch.
