My first Christmas craft

I found this tutorial on how to make your own gift bow using only a page from a magazine and a few staples.

I love trying new projects, but I can rarely manage to complete anything that even remotely resembles whatever I set out to make on the first try. This, however, turned out beautifully. I'm not sure if that's a testament to the simplicity of the project or if I'm actually beginning to become a bit crafty :) In any case, click here to see the tutorial and give it a try for youself! Perfect timing for all my fellow procrastinators out there, and as a plus, it's eco-friendly!

I think it's funny that the first thing I thought of when I saw this project (and also the first thing most people say to me when I show them the bow) is, "you can do that yourself??" As in, "there's not some law that bows have to come from the Hallmark factory, manufactured through a mystical patended process??" Hmm...I can see a whole new world opening up to me...what else don't I have to buy?

Here's my finished product:
