Paper Bow: The Perfect Gift Topper!

Happy Tuesday, Crafters! Now that Black Friday and Cyber Monday are behind us, its time to start thinking about how you are going to top off all those fantastic gifts! {and if you made gifts, a handmade gift topper is the cherry on top, right?!} 

Paper Bow

Lifestyle crafts has a fun new line of bow die cuts that are super easy to assemble {as in they come together in minutes!} so you can have a handmade bow in a flash!

I had fun making bows from red glitter paper. The glittery red made such a pretty paper bow! It pops nicely on the simple brown gift box above {yes, you may think I’m obsessed with Brown Paper Packages this year! hehe I guess its my unintentional theme for Christmas this year!}

You could make these bows with all sorts of different papers. For example; chalkboard paper {you could write their name on the bow!}, foil paper, shiny paper, double sided cardstock, patterned paper, etc.

Hi! I'm Linda, the craft addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous®, a craft blog. Crafting is cheaper than therapy, right? When I'm not DIYing something, I can be found taxiing around our 4 crazy kids or working out. Or shoe shopping... because you can never have too many shoes! Happy crafting! ♥

    I bet you could cut felt with these too! They would make darling little bows for girls to wear in their hair!

    They sure dress up a package and won’t crush easily like regular bows. Pretty.

    These are fantastic. I looked at their website and didn’t see it in their inventory, is it not available to the public yet?
