Years ago my mom started a wrapping paper business where she sold industrial-sized rolls of gift wrap, the metal cutters and oodles of ribbon. As a paper-addict, I was in heaven! Eventually I followed in her footsteps and worked the business for a while until I found Stampin' Up! Anywhooo...that's where I learned this lovely little technique to make a curled paper bow from your gift wrap:
1. Start with a piece of wrapping paper or DSP. This is a 12x12 piece of DSP and you begin by folding it in half. If using a rectangle, fold it in half the long way, or "hot dog" fold. My favorite size is about 18" x 12" for a large package, but don't worry about the measurements...just grab a piece of paper from your printer and follow along!!
