These are much, much easier than I thought to make and you can change the number of layers needed by varying the lengths and width, each time creating a different effect and style, so you can either be uniform, or just make it up as you go along [like me].
Shall we start?
As you know, I love my brown paper wrapping, so I'm going all out with a neon patterned tissue paper design, but you can use almost anything to create these.
With each strip, pattern side down, create a figure eight, looping each end and join in the middle with a staple/cellotape/glue:
ribbon bows are easy peasy too - create a decorative bow with this technique, posted here.
I hope you've had a great weekend
[As a side note, I'm also sad to say that I think we have reached the time of year where all my photos will have a slightly grey-it's-raining-outside hue to them].
