Sure, you can just go to the store and buy a bow. But why not make your gift show a bit more thought and style? Recycle old maps, glossy ads and other paper into creative bows with this guide.
Design blog How about orange... put together a tutorial for turning a glossy magazine page into a gift bow. They talk about using it in a gift-wrapping emergency, but we'd be equally as impressed if someone used paper related to the gift in some way — paper from a travel brochure for a travel-related gift, a cover of a sports magazine for piece of sports equipment and so on.
Check out the full guide at the link below, and if you have you own crafty wrapping tricks, let's hear them in the comments.
