Those are fantastic!  I wish I hadn't seen this post at midnight...I could be up all night making these!

Thanks for the tutorial, too...your cell phone takes much better pics than mine, lol Wink

Listen carefully to first criticisms made of your work.  Note just what it is about your work that critics don't like - then cultivate it.  That's the only part of your work that's individual and worth keeping. ~Jean Cocteau

I made one out of newspaper for a friend's gift who is a big bookworm.  My gift was a book so she was impressed at how well coordinated i was!

Thanks again for sharing!!

I've started crafting for Christmas and think I might have to make bows for all my gifts now!  Grin

I bookmarked this way back when it was first posted because I knew I'd do it.  About a month ago a made 25 or so.  The next time I went to open a new can of cat food, I realized that the label that I remove everytime so I can recycle it and the can is a strip just like the ones I made all those bows out of!  So I saved them for a few weeks until I had enough for a couple of bows (1 of each type of food)! 

They crack me up.

Thanks for posting the tut!

Oh I love these, is there a tutorial on how to make them? I had to make one out of ribbon not too long ago for a gift for my dad haha it took me a while to figure out what to do.

What a cute way to recycle!
