It's always a good feeling when you discover making something isn't as hard as you'd originally thought. For instance, bows. Yes, like birthday and Christmas present bows and sure you can go buy a bag off the shelf and stuff it in your closet to be forgotten about, but why bother when you can just make them as you need them...

Jessica Jones over at How About Orange... posted up these easy diy bow instructions that utilize old magazine pages. We'd seen them floating around the internet before, but they'd never seemed quite so easy and do-able before!

This is a great way to use up scrap pieces of paper from around the house, magazines that are headed for the trash, old wrapping paper and even junk mail!

Her pictures will make you want to make one today... or if you're us, make 30 today! You just never know when you'll need a fabulous bow!

Check out the full tutorial over at How About Orange!
