Giant Bow Gift Wrap DIY

by Michaela Egger

Last month when my daughter and I were wrapping a birthday gift to bring to her friend’s party, the result was sort of underwhelming – especially for a 5 year old! “Mom, that gift looks kind of small” was her reaction once we had finished wrapping up the lovely little present we had bought. So, I thought “let’s make it bigger!” and came up with this easy giant bow gift wrap. All you need is a little more gift wrapping paper and you can make a big impression with an ittybitty gift!
