    How To Make a Wrapping Paper Hair Bow

    • Cover about 20 inches of wrapping paper in clear tape to make your “ribbon”. (The size is up to you, the more paper you use, the bigger your bow will be.
    • Cut off about 3 inches of your “ribbon” and put it aside. (We are going to use it as the bow middle.)
    • Now, tape your wrapping together in a donut shape.
    • Squish the donut together in the middle to make a figure 8.
    • Pinch the middle of your figure 8 to make the bow.
    • Place the hair tie on the back of the bow.
    • Take the piece we set aside earlier and put some tape on the end of it. Now wrap it around the middle of your bow (and the hair tie) to secure everything in place.
