DIY Gift Bows Made From Magazine Pages

I am done with the shopping but not the wrapping and bow-ing c",) Gift wrapping is easy and free when you shop at Sm Department store, because they offer free gift wrapping services for a minimum purchase of (???) Sorry I forgot. But I like bows on boxes. It looks stinking cute. But ribbon you buy by the yard is expensive and I am not good with soft ribbons. I always mess up. So I remember a school project way way way back about making bows out of paper. This is an easy one. A two year old can do this so can you. c",)

Have fun!

Oooh this is an awesome idea! I'm done wrapping my gifts but I'll keep this in mind for next year.

I tried availing of SM's gift wrapping services, but everyone else had that same idea because the line was so looooong. And each person in line had like, 20 boxes to wrap. -_-
