121608-bow.jpgThis past weekend we were at the Container Store picking up a few last minute gifts for our blog colleagues when we were recruited by a group of women giving a demo on how to make your own fancy bows. Initially skeptical, we were completely won over after making our first bow!…

The bow we made, the basic pom pom bow, can be made large or small, with stiff ribbon, wire ribbon, or our favorite soft satin ribbon, and dresses up even the simplest of wrapping papers. Once you’ve made a few, try some of the variations: the poinsettia bow, the aster bow, the chrysanthemum bow and the carnation bow. For complete instructions, click here.
