{DIY} tie the perfect bow

Tis the season for gift giving ... AND last minute wrapping!  If you are like me, you are probably up late at night with a glass of wine and wrapping until your eyelids get heavy.  I haven't even attempted to wrap while Anna is awake.  Disaster I'm sure.  I am starting to run out of giftwrap.  And some of my packages are so small I really don't want to pull off a whole sheet of paper and create a bunch of scraps.  These holiday bows are so festive you can wrap an ordinary box and they'll still make the cut under the tree.

perfect christmas bow

These bows are so simple you'll wonder why you never made them before!  I bought a giant roll of glittery ribbon from Michael's with a coupon.  You'll want to use the kind with wire on the edges.  Wire is the key to a perfect loop.
