An easy origami bow in an easy to follow step by step photo tutorial.
I used 13 x 18 cm thick paper, but you could use half of printer paper, or A5 paper, or smaller.
These cute bows would look lovely as an embellishment on a gift or card! You can round the edges or not, the rounded ones look like the bow from Hello Kitty!
