Lately I've been making a little stash of origami bows to use on my snail mail letters, aren't they just the cutest?! At first I was having so much trouble with a certain step of the bow, but then I watched a fabulous tutorial and managed to get it sorted.
They're quite lovely to create and only use one sheet of origami paper. I'm going to keep on folding until I have twenty or so of these bows whipped up and ready to go. The only downside to using them on snail mail is they bows are pretty much guaranteed to get squished in the post.
I'm thinking they'd be lovely to pop on Christmas gifts too - imagine a stash of gifts under the tree, all covered with pretty paper bows. Now I just need to remember to do this when the festive time arrives!
