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 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!
