DIY Paper Bow Tutorial: 5+ Bows with 1 Template!

Paper Bow Template and Tutorial

Hi everyone! Continuing on with the trend of paper projects, in my latest video tutorial we’re creating 5 different bows out of paper! These are all easy and quick to make, require limited supplies, and there’s a lot of different ways you could use them – attach them to a gift, a card or other paper craft.

There’s one very important thing to know before you make these: you must use thin paper, such as non-cardstock scrapbook paper. If the paper is too thick, it will crease as you create the curved areas of the bows and won’t look good. Also, you will need glue/adhesive that has a strong hold and sets fast. For this reason, I like to use hot glue. I tested Tacky glue on this, and it just didn’t hold fast enough.

Materials List:

  • Thin paper (such as thin scrapbook paper)
  • Glue (hot glue works great)
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
