Week 19 Baby-Step Creation: Beautiful Origami Bows

This weekend will be a double act – two tutorials that only require a pair of scissors and materials you’ll easily find around the house. First up: pretty origami bows.

With Xmas just round the corner, it’s a chance to create your own gift wrapping special touch with these paper bows. Now I’ll be honest, it took me a couple of goes to get the hang of it. So a little trial and error is expected, but once you get the knack of it you’ll be churning each one out in no time at all!


I broke out an old Frankie mag for some really pretty paper to use, and measured up a square – it helps to get the accurate as possible. I found the tutorial for these bows whilst scanning Flipboard, and although I’m not going to go through every little detail in this post you can find Helen’s brilliant step-by-step instructions at her blog Let’s Create.

Here’s the rest of the gallery…

So check out Helen’s instructions, and don’t get too downhearted if your paper won’t fold in the right way or looks totally different – you must persevere! Because check out the gorgeous results 🙂IMG_4004 IMG_4005 Christmas is all sorted now!IMG_4009
