Handmade bows and gift bags

If your running low on gift bags and bows, fear not!  If your don't have time to run to the store you can make your own!  If you have any paper bag and a couple of sheets of scrapbook paper you are on your way to making something fabulous.  Here is what you do:
Cut 13 strips of paper 3/4 in. X 3 3/4 in.

Make 12 loops and 1 circle for the center, as shown in photo.
Use double stick adhesive to attach groups of four loops together.
When you have 3 groups, stick them together alternating directions.
Place circle in center, and your have a bow!

Decorate your paper bag any way you choose, attach your bow and a simple tag and you're done!
