Happy christmas eve! Can not believe christmas is almost over. To be honest it didn't really feel too christmasy this year, I know school had a lot to do with that as well as running around all the time. So to save time I thought I would make gift wrapping easy with these felt gift bows. They are a perfect way to top any small package. But I must say my favorite is wrapping one around a wine, and the best part is you can use these all year round. I make enough to save me throughout the whole year. That way when a birthday or special event comes up and I have nothing to give, I grab me one of these, head to the market & done. Oh and they are totally reusable!

Step one: Choose the type of felt you'd like to use.
Step two: Use these measurements for length and width. I was to lazy to cut each strip so I just guesstimated.
Step three: Glue each strip into criss cross ribbons (similar to breast cancer awareness ones).
& leave that little piece shown below alone. You'll use it later.
Step four: Pile longest ribbons on the bottom (3 of them) and so on.
3 strips, 10 1/2" x 3/4"
3 strips, 9 1/2" x 3/4"
2 strips, 8 1/2" x 3/4"
1 strip, 3 1/2" x 3/4"
Step five: Now its time to use that small strip and form a circle. This will go on the top of the pile of ribbons.
I made a burgundy one as well!
I also decided to add elastic to tie around a bottle of wine for a quick gift wrap!
Just hot glue the elastic to the bottom of the bow, then glue a piece of felt to secure it.
Or turn it into a pin! Perfect for holiday parties or simply to be festive.
