Recycled Bows

This past week I learned how to make paper bows.  I have always wanted to learn, but never took the time.  I don't think I will ever buy another bow!  You can use any paper you have around the house.  Check out the Spring 2011 issue of, Greencrafts.  Jennifer Jackson has a great article entitled, "Fun and Frilly Package Toppers".  Tracie Lampe ( and Maya Donenfeld ( have great instructions on making paper flowers and bows.
