DIY Bow from Maps and Magazines

Check out this awesome DIY tutorial on creating your own bow from How about Orange.
Jessica suggests using magazines lying around the house or even maps which I especially like.

paper, magazine, maps...anything :0)
staples and adhesive (glue dots)

Cut a magazine page into 9 strips, 3/4" wide. Leave 3 of the strips full length. Cut one inch off 3 of the strips. Cut two inches off 2 of the strips. Cut the last strip down to 3 1/2" long.

Twist each strip to form a loop at both ends and staple it in the center. Shape the last, short strip into a circle and secure it with a glue dot.

Layer the 3 longest pieces on top of each other, spacing them evenly and securing each with a glue dot. Add the next two groups of pieces, doing the same. And finally, stick the loop into the center.

No need to buy expensive bows from the stationery store anymore!
