You can use a different yarn, but choose one glitters to give a sparkling touch to the ribbon.

The size depend on your package. Make a chain that cover a part of it and then work the half double crochet inside the chain.

To make the bow I follow the pattern in the post of how to crochet candy canes, but I work the bow starting from the middle and not from the side !

Follow the graphic down here and if you find difficulty, you can read the table where I explained all the steps.

Repeat from 2nd to 12th row to make the other half of the bow.

Join the end with 1 SL ST and work 1 SC all around the bow.

Fasten off and cut the yarn leaving a long tail.

Now that the bow is ready, let’s make a band of a number of chains needed to wrap one side of the gift box.

Work 1 HALF DOUBLE CROCHET in each CHAINs starting in the 3rd CH from hook.

Attach the bow to the tie and hold the end of the thread long that you will use to make several loops in the center of the bow and then secure it with two hidden knots. (watch the video tutorial)

♻ Recycle Idea!

Once you have used all the wrapping paper to make your gift packages, keep the final cardboard of each roll aside, it will come in handy to make the labels to match each gift with the name of the recipient!

In the video I show you how I made the label for my daughter “NICOLE”, with the “O” transformed into a cute snowman and the dot of the “i” like a snowball!

Make a hole, as shown in the photo and insert a piece of gold string.
