Not a new idea, but still a cute one! We haven't blogged about gift wrapping since the holidays and I was totally digging the spring color that the yellow pages offer, so I decided to share! Who knew the yellow pages could be so pretty? Fun, right? Read on for instructions and details.

Although the images pretty much tell the story, How About Orange gives a great description about how to assemble this sweet little bow. Here's a little peek:

Step One: "Cut 1" wide strips from pages removed from a phone book. Stacking several sheets and slicing them lengthwise with a paper cutter or rotary cutter is quickest."

Step Two: "Cut 5 or 6 full-length strips, depending on how full you'd like the bow to be. Cut 4 strips that are 3" shorter. Save one of the leftover short ends to use in the center of the bow."
