2. To make the bow, cut 4 strips of paper to 8.5" long x .75" wide. Then cut one piece to 4 " long x .75" wide.
3. Take 2 of the long strips and loop over onto each other. Stack the 2 pieces on top of each other and arrange at at 90 degree angle. Staple the pieces together in the center. Repeat for the 2 other strips.
4. Take the short piece, loop it around and stack it on top of the stapled pairs from step 3. Staple all of these pieces together and you've made yourself a recycled bow!
5. Cut another .75" strip of paper and wrap around the box. Attach the bow to the top and your gift is packed with recycling power!
