Go get a magazine, scissors, glue stick and stapler and make one with me.
Here we go....
I found a fishing magazine. Who don't love little fishes right?
I tore out a page (magazine pages are slick and shiny)
Cut 13 strips (top to bottom of page) about 1/2 inch wide.
Leave 3 full length
Cut one inch off 3
Cut two inches off 3
Cut three inches off 3
Cut the last piece down to about 3 inches long (this will be your center loop)
With the last strip, fold into a circle and glue to hold.
With each 4 sizes, place together like a flower and staple the middles.
Then place each flower inside the larger flower and staple all together as one bow.
Then glue the circle loop in the center to finish off.
Secret: This was my first one. I'm sure they will get better with practice.
I think these would be really cute made with recycled maps or newspaper too.
