[Tutorial + Template] How To Make Paper Bow Tie

I’ve been making paper bows to slap on to wrapped presents on many occasions and I loved doing so because it brings uniqueness to the gift.

They not only look super cute and fancy but can enhance the overall look of the gift when giving it to your friend, family, or co-worker.

This is perfect for you to make if you run out of ribbon, need something quick, and paper is an abundance. Make your own paper bow and show it off.
