Frugal Tuesday Tip: Getting ready for the holidays

I started getting ready for a handmade holiday a few weeks ago. Since knitting and gardening and cooking are not completely accessible to everyone, I thought I’d share something that most people can cheaply and easily do. It’s something my sister-in-law introduced us to a while back — making gift bows. All you need is magazine paper and brads or a stapler.

These first two links do not use a center loop (you’ll understand if you take a look); the last link makes a bow with a center loop.

My daughter and I made a few this afternoon before dinner as she prepares for a 4-H presentation this month. We thought the other families would benefit from this with the holidays coming up.

Let’s move on to the Frugal Tuesday Tip!
