Crafting and cut projects generally leave lots of scraps and extras. Don't throw them away! Use those extras to make darling junk bows, the new rage in gift wrapping! Junk Bows are the perfect way to use all those leftovers that you don't really know what to do with otherwise, from the remnants of scrapbook papers, ribbons, or just extras of this and that. And one of my favorite things to do with the left over strips of paper from my cutting projects to cut out borders or other things to add to these fun bows as well!
Begin your bows by compiling your master "junk" pile. Anything goes! This is the time to use all your left over scrapbook scraps, saved ribbons from old gifts, left over scrapbook supplies.
