DIY Gift Bows (with Cupcake Wrappers!)
Do you know what I just can't do? Holiday themed DIY. Every new holiday I have like Craft Anxiety (that's a thing) because all of the other bloggers are shooting out clever little heart-shaped everything and I'm just sitting here frozen like Arendelle. I was in the studio tonight determined to make a heart out of anything, and instead I ended up making gift bows. Haha, I just can't!! I think I have a hard time doing what I'm "supposed to do" in general, so when the world says: "Make Valentine's things!" I turn into Grump Cat: "No." But it's ok, I like bows better than hearts, anyway!
Wanna make some??
You'll need this stuff: (+ scotch tape)
- Fold two cupcake wrappers in half.
- Fold them in half again.
- Make them kiss, and put a wee bit of scotch tape there to hold them together. (Optional: Sing "Let's Stay Together" by Al Green in your head.)
- Wrap some glittery gold washi tape around the center. You CAN use other kinds of washi tape, but I'm just warning you now, that nothing looks as good as glittery gold. (That's true for anything in life.) You can get this particular tape at JoAnn stores.
- Fluff out each side so they look nice and full.
Put them on all the things, or string them as a garland for a party!
Have a wonderful day. You are lovely. :0)
