Hi Everyone! Happy November! I hope you all had a good weekend. It feels like everything went from fall to winter here pretty much overnight this weekend; we went from sunny fall weather to freezing in a thick sweatshirt on Halloween, and from stores displaying all things fall to turning into Santa’s workshop! I guess the holidays really are just around the corner now. And since that means lots of gift wrapping in the next couple of weeks (because I am determined to get my Christmas shopping done early this year and not have to go through the shopping madness that starts mid-December!) I thought I would share a fun little gift wrapping DIY with you today! I love anything with lace, and thought these bows would look so sweet with some kraft wrapping paper. They are not necessarily Christmas themed, so you could use these all year round! Here is how you can make them…
DIY LACE GIFTWRAP BOWS
YOU WILL NEED
Lace or lace ribbon (if using ribbon, make sure it’s at least 3/4 inch wide)
Ruler & Scissors
Hot Glue Gun
To make these lace bows, you can follow my tutorial I posted for making handmade paper bows (find it HERE), the only difference is that you either need to cut strips of lace (keeping them the same length and width as the paper strips in the tutorial) or if you are using lace ribbon (which you want to be at least 3/4 inch wide), cut three 10 inch pieces, three 9 inch pieces, and 1 4.5 inch piece, just like with the paper strips. You also need to be more careful when using the hot glue gun because of all the gaps in the lace, make sure you don’t burn your fingers!

Happy Crafting, Everyone!

These are so cute! I have tons of leftover scrapbook paper and this is the perfect way to use some of it. I might even get really adventurous and try crocheting some strips to make the lacy ones.
