Birthday Bows







I don't stash wrapping paper or bows in my house because extra storage space is in high demand in my apartment. As a result, I try to go a bit green by using things like paper bags and newspaper, etc. A while ago I ran across this awesome bow tutorial that uses a single magazine page to create the bow. I decided to use it for my sister's birthday presents this year and I LOVE how they turned out. I only have food magazines so everything is made of pictures of arugula pizza or kiwi or bacon which makes me smile. If you have a big pile of old magazines lying around, I highly recommend this tutorial as an easy way to make the most of them!
