Hand Drawn Bow | 5 Minute Upgrade

This series was born when a friend requested quick ways to make a gift look nice before running out the door. Want more fast gift wrapping ideas? Click here to see every 5 Minute Upgrade post to date!

I saw this idea in a nice post on SimpleMom titled Eco-friendly and green gift wrapping ideas for this holiday season. Out of ribbon, or just looking for a way to personalize plain gift wrap? Break out the crayons and have at it! This would be a fun way to decorate a gift to be mailed or taken on a trip for the holidays - no ribbon bow to get squashed!

It doesn't have to be symmetrical or even that realistic - even the most childish-looking bow would have me smiling. What about you? Too simple for your tastes, or just right?

    I'm actually really sad I didn't do this to a birthday card I just sent out.

    we should totally work on our telepathy.
