Step 1

You will need to lay out (3) 10 1/2 inches, (3) 9 1/2 inches, (2) 8 1/2 inches, and (1) 3 1/2 inches of duct tape onto your cutting board. And you will need some pieces of scrap duct tape to put the finished pieces together.


Step 2

Next you will need to fold your pieces of tape length wise to make about a 3/4 inch strip. Fold one side to the center of the strip, then the other side over the strip.

Continue stacking them onto each other starting with the 10 1/2 inch strips, then the 9 1/2, and finally the 8 1/2. Make sure to rotate the placement of each strip to create the look of the bow. Again, secure them together using a scrap piece of tape.


Step 5

Finally, take the 3 1/2 strip and roll it to make the center of the bow and attach it to the top of the bow.
