Just about everyone has those moments when you are wrapping a gift at the last minute and you realize that you do not have any bows or it does not match or you need a special size and they can get expensive to buy. Well take out the felt or some of your card stock and make yourself one. I bet you can make some really pretty bows out or some fancy card stock. And this is a great way to recycle or use up supplies you have on hand.

So helpful for the Christmas season! I can't tell you how many times I have forgotten to buy bows at the stores. Now I won't have to worry about that with this awesome gift wrapping tutorial!
