DIY Gift Bows

Rachel from Lines Across My Face prepared a wonderful tutorial, Turn Your Toddler Scribbles into Gift Bows.

My kindergartener is always busy after school creating pictures and drawings. It is his thing. So, when I found Rachel’s tutorial for turning toddler scribbles into bows via Pinterest I decided to create them with my son.

He was eager to cover a sheet of 8 1/2 by 11 sketch paper with green crayon for our project. I used my paper cutter to create the strips and then followed Rachel’s detailed tutorial to create this….

I thought tape would be good enough to hold our paper but I reverted to a glue gun and it was the perfect option.

I love how sturdy our bow is and how it beautifully completes our birthday present!
