Origami Bows

I've been meaning to do this blog post for a while but things kept getting in the way! I've been rather poorly this week but thankfully felt a bit better today so here we are. I first saw this tutorial for origami bows on Pinterest and loved it! I've always been a lover of origami and I think these are really effective. Pretty easy to follow, although I did find the cutting bits a bit tricky and I ended up cutting a few bows wrong at first! Practice makes perfect though, and I can see me using these to decorate many gifts in the future!

I used papers ripped from magazines as well as brown paper (decorated with white paint dots) and a couple of the papers are from my Crafty Creatives boxes. The black flower one was part of their oriental box three and makes the cutest little bow! Thinner papers such as these and magazine pages are more suited because they fold much easier than others :) xo
