DIY neon paper gift bows


Brown paper bags and neon paper can yield some nice-looking gift packaging. I made these bows with more of the Astrobright Neon paper I mentioned yesterday. These look a lot cuter in person because the neon practically glows. The yellow bow is a stack of paper loops glued together. The pink bow is made like this. The orange bow is made from three pieces of paper: the tails, the loops, and a band for the center. (Update: I've added a template for this one right here.)

I've been following your blog since before you originally posted that pink bow pattern! I've used it a few times and passed the pattern onto friends. I love what you find! You are too cool. And you and your mom are a hoot!

Question: what do you DO with all these little paper crafts you make? You must have quite a stash somewhere!

Thanks for brightening many of my days!

Anonymous, whoa, you go way back! :) Some things are pinned to my bulletin board or sitting on a shelf above my desk. I also have a box of paper things. I pull something out when I need to wrap a present and impress somebody. Or the flat things, I mail to kids (or grownups sometimes.)

One of my favorite parts of giving gifts is wrapping them. So I'm always looking for new inspiration for wrapping. Love these simple, clean bows! Thanks Jessica!
