Annie from OnceUponA PartyDoha here to share a paper bow and ornament tutorial. I love making these paper ornaments as they do not require the use of any fancy cutting machines, they double up as wonderful paper bows for gift boxes and last but not least, they can use up scraps of paper. I hate throwing away scraps of beautiful specialty printed paper and these make perfect use of fancy papers.
- DCWV Gold & White Stack
- Gold Glitter paper (similar to Duo-Tone Gold Glitter Cardstock)
- Hot glue
- Embellishment for the center
How to make holiday paper bows and ornaments
Cut cardstock into strips. I have used 2cm (.75") wide and 30cm (11.75") long strips of paper. You can keep the length shorter for smaller size ornaments.
Fold each strip into a loop and glue at the center. Glue the center of the loop from the inside too to create a double headed loop, where the center is glued together and both ends have a loop.
Stagger and glue each loop onto each other. Add more loops to create a fuller shape to the ornament. Add string to tie onto the tree. I love that these can be customized to any colour scheme, and you can vary the sizes to add more dimension to your décor.
These double up as amazing paper bows for gift boxes as well. For a different look, you can add single paper strips to the bottom of the bow that have the ends cut fancy. Wrap your presents in style this holiday season!
