Tissue Paper Bow

      Today I was in a pinch for a bow. Outta time and outta $ if ya know what I mean. So I dug through my left over stuff in my craft drawer and found some tissue paper that sort of matched the wrapping paper that I found in another drawer. Happy Day...Remember those tissue paper bows that you used to make in elementary school to give to your momma on Mother's Day! Well they make the perfect gift wrap bows!

Simple, simple, simple.  First fold accordion style... in the center with twist tie or pipe cleaner. I used raffia.

Gently pull each layer of paper apart until you have a beautiful flower!

Happy 1st Birthday Meredith!
