Do you need to wrap a present in a hurry? Look no further than these cute and simple gift bows you can make in a few minutes.

What you’ll need:

  • cupcake patty papers
  • wide packing sticky tape


  1. Cut 2 pieces of tape a few inches long and stick together to make a square.
  2. Leave the tape, sticky side up on the table and scrunch one patty paper and stick it in the middle of the square. YT gift bow
  3. Repeat, scrunching more wrappers and placing them around the central paper. YT gift bow
  4. Repeat and add another layer to make the bow look full.                                   YT gift bow
  5. Attach a piece of sticky tape on the underside of the bow to attach it to your present. YT gift bow
  6. Stick it on your present and it’s ready to give to that special person.                 YT gift bow

These are so simple to make and look gorgeous on the gift.

    • Lol… Clever idea

      • It is a wonderful idea, but how many people normally have wide sticky tape?
        Most people normally use narrow or perhaps medium width sticky tape.
        The only normal use for wide sticky tape that I know of is closing cartons.


  • Very clever and very pretty! Thanks.
