The materials needed to make a tissue paper bow include:
– Tissue paper sheets in various colors
– Glue stick
Gather together your supplies and get ready to make a paper bow. Follow the steps listed below and finish your tissue paper bow craft project in just a few minutes.
Step 1 – Get four sheets of tissue paper of coordinating colors. You’ll want two sheets of each color. Then, cut each sheet to a size of 16″ X 5″.
Step 2 – On one side of the tissue paper, spread the glue stick on each tissue paper sheet and stick them together. It is important you only glue one side! It is essential that you do not use regular glue in place of a glue stick, as this will make the paper too damp and will result in a long dry time.
Step 3 – Take your scissors and snip long slits along the side of the tissue paper that is not glued. Space the slits about ½” apart, cutting into the tissue paper up to the point where the glue was applied.
Step 4 – Spread the glue stick along the same area that was glued before and roll the tissue paper up to form a ‘roll’. Press it together firmly. The glue will dry immediately and you can continue with STEP 5 of your tissue paper bow craft project.
Step 5 – Use your fingers to shape the bow into a pom-pom shape. Fluff the tissue paper and then apply it to your package. You can use either tape, a glue dot, or even more of the glue stick to attach the tissue paper bow to your gift.
Tip – Any type of tissue paper can be used for this tissue paper bow craft project. Foil paper, printed paper, solid paper, or a combination of different types will make for a beautiful paper bow.
