Easy Paper Bow

So, let’s start making a paper bow! ūüôā

You can either watch my video tutorial or follow the step-by-step instructions below. 

Step 1

Get an A4 sized paper and fold it in half vertically. Fold it again in half two more times. Now cut this paper along the creases you just got.

You will get 8 equally sized paper strips.

Step 2

Divide the paper strips into two sets of 4 each. Take one set and cut approximately 4 cm out of it. Now, you will have one set of long and one set of short paper strips.

Step 3

Take a paper strip and glue the tips together to form a circular shape. Then, put some glue inside the circle and stick it to the opposite side to form an 8 – shape.

Let’s make these 8-shapes out of the other paper strips too. You will get four big 8-shapes and four small 8-shapes.

Step 5

Apply some glue at the middle of the 8-shapes. Start sticking them together one by one on top of the other. Start with the big ones followed by the small ones as shown on the pictures below.

Once you have finished sticking all the 8-shapes, make a tiny roll of paper and stick it in the middle of the bow. (You can use the left-over paper from step 2 for this. ūüôā )

Step 7

Just one small step more! Take another piece of paper and cut two paper strips out of it. Make sure they are of the same width as the paper strips we just used for the bow.

Stick them together at the tips to form a V-shape. And remove a small V shape out of both the ends.

Now, stick it at the back of the bow.
