Holiday paper bows - how to

We made these simple bows at card club last night.  They are so easy to make I thought I'd share how.  

Cut paper - see template.  You will have three 1"x12" strips, three 1"x10" strips and one 1"x5" strips.  Fold as shown in photo, you will make a figure 8. Staple each figure 8 in the center.  Adhere the three larger figure eights together, then adhere the three smaller eights together.  Assemble and adhere on top of each other and top off with center loop.  Done.
