Super Easy Paper Bow

A couple of weeks ago I posted a decorated a pizza box with a bow as a part of a project I was working on. Afterwards, I received requests to show how I made the bow. And that is exactly what I am bringing you today.


I made three different sizes. There is no one way how to shape these bows. Once you know how to make the basic loop you can use as many as you wish in one bow.

A general rule is you make 1-4 loops in 3 different sizes and then you stack them on top of each other. The loops hold together with a brad or glue or you can use a thread and needle.

Here are the measurements for the 3 bows featured in my video tutorial below:

The gummy bears paper:
3 strips of 4" x 3/8", 2 strips of 3" x 3/8", 1 strip of 2" x 3/8", 1 strip of 1" x 3/8" for the middle loop

The rainbow paper:
3 strips of 12" x 1", 2 strips of 11" x 1", 1 strip of 10" x 1", 1 strip of 4 1/2" x 1" for the middle loop

The flower paper:
4 strips of 11" x 3/4", 2 strips of 10" x 3/4", 2 strips of 9" x 3.4", 1 strip of 3" x 3/4" for the middle loop

    1. Thank you, Maryann. I think the fantastic Stampin' Up! designer series paper is doing the half of the job!
