Everyone knows that a Christmas gift is sorely incomplete without a bow on top. That's why it's so common to request professional gift wrapping to quite literally tie up all of the loose ends.
But did you know it's actually quite simple to DIY retail-style bows at home? All you need is your gift, scissors and a large spool of ribbon. After you wrap the the gift cross width and cross length, you'll knot and snip off the ribbon for later use. You'll then take four inches of the ribbon and loop it up. Then, snip the full loop on both sides in the middle, without cutting through completely.
You'll tie the snipped loop up under another knot and pull the ribbon from the inside out from all around. And ta-da! Your gifts will be ready in no time, both for wonderful photos and wonderful recipients.
See how to do so in the step-by-step video below.
