DIY Gift Bow 

This is my favorite Pinterest find – make a bow from a magazine page and I’ve made several of these bows for a couple years now. It’s a wonderful, easy-to-follow tutorial. I have saved many, many colorful pages from magazines and even used wrapping paper to make these bows when I had extra time and save them in a box. It works best when the paper is double sided.


When I got a Cricut machine I created a DIY gift bow cut file in Design Space so I didn’t have to do it by hand 🙌 — saved so much time!!

You can fit one bow on a letter size page. 8.5″ x 11″

I saw felt bows in the store and used a cardboard template to cut the bows because it’s almost impossible to cut felt on a Cricut machine. I believe I just hand sewed the pieces together.


I think the felt looks really awesome against the shiny wrapping paper and ribbon 👍

I can’t wait to wrap gifts this Christmas as DIY’d as my kids will let me … lol
