Upcycled gift bows

A few days ago a crafty friend of mine (who also happens to be Garrett's god mother) posted a link to a great DIY project for the holidays.   It isn't a gift, but a gift bow tutorial.  Not just any gift bow, but gift bows made from recycled magazine covers.
I had to try it.   It was fast and easy (2 things I love when it comes to getting things done for the holidays).   Here's my gift bow:

Instead of using a magazine cover I used a page from an advertisement I got.  It wasn't shiny but the paper was a nice weight and I love the jewel tones in the ad.   It took me about 10 minutes to cut, staple and then glue everything together.  Now I only wish I had more packages to make bows for.
