Pinterest Inspired - Wrapping Paper Bow

Is it better with...

or B?

So, I was wrapping a present today and finished with some extra paper leftover... and I looked at the plain boring box and decided that even if it was just for a kid, it needed some jazzing.

And I remembered seeing a quick and easy bow made out of extra wrapping paper. So I returned to Pinterest and did a search... do you know how fun it is to search on Pinterest?!?!  and I found it!! so I pinned it for future reference and then I gave it a go for this cute little package!!

Here's the original pin. Wrapping Paper Bow

and here is my cute little bow and the process I took to get there!

Fold your extra paper in half horizontally, then fold it vertically once or twice and cut side folds (close to the top, but not all the way) so the only fold is your original fold.

Then start cutting thin lines within a 1/2 inch of the top.  (the great thing about this project is there is NO need for perfection)

Take scissors and start curling the paper like you do curling ribbon. Always turn the paper so you are curling with the print out.

You will most likely rip a few pieces off completely, but you will never notice when you get it all done.

Then fold it in half again and fluff it a little. (I forgot to photograph that step)
Tape it together if necessary and then tape it to the box and arrange it beautifully.

Admire your work and thank Pinterest for making you so crafty! :)

I can't wait to do this next year with all my Christmas presents!!
