1. Big Bow

Instructions 

  1. To create the bow part of the present, make a ribbon out of Scotch® Expressions Masking Tape by folding the two sticky sides of the tape together. Using this process, create three different sized ribbons, making each one a little smaller than the other. Leave a little sticky section for each ribbon as you fold it over into a circle and secure the end by overlapping the tape.
  2. Place the three ribbon circles on top of each other, starting from the largest to the smallest.
  3. Then wrap small piece of tape around the middle to hold it all together. I used a small piece of Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape.
  4. Wrap Scotch® Expressions Masking Tape around the gift.
  5. Next, either use a little craft glue or double-sided tape to fasten the blow to the top (craft glue dries quickly and it makes the bow durable).
