I have TONS of magazines around my house. TONS. I got a bunch of gift subscriptions once and they’re still going! I normally give them away when I’m done, but by then, I’ve received….more….magazines.
Thanks to one of my favorite wedding/DIY/crafty blogs, 100 Layer Cake, I think I’ve got a way to creatively put those mags to good use. Tah-dah! DIY gift bows out of magazine pages.
One of my subscription mags uses extra thick paper that will be PERFECT for making these bows. What do you guys think? Personally, I love this idea! It’s quick, easy, and if I use bright colors, I think it’ll be festive and super fun. Plus, I agree with 100 Layer Cake—I do feel rather proud and satisfied when I reuse something. Awww, that holiday spirit. Happy crafting!
