Bows from Magazines

As the holidays approach we can all remember a time when we had a wrapping emergency as we are running out of the house late for a party and we're all out of wrapping paper! Or maybe your just trying to be more conscious of the environment and love to recycle. Well save your old magazines because here is a great way to make a bow from the pages. And don't forget that paper bags, old newspapers, maps, or fabric scraps can be a great eco-friendly gift wrap.
Cut the page lengthwise into nine 3/4" thick strips in the heights shown above. (three 11", three 10", two 9", one 3.5") Its best if the strips are mostly the same color.

Twist each strip to form loops at both ends. Make a circle out of the smallest. Secure ends with a piece of double stick take.

Layer and stick starting with the longest strips. End with the circle in the center.
