Duct Tape Bows!

So this is the kind of bows that I started making at first, cute, very simple, but I saw some on the Duct Tape website that I think just look so much better and it's very similar to the one above, just a couple of extra steps.

Two pieces of duct tape, I'ld say like 6 to 8 in, I really just eyeball duct tape measurements.

Stick them together, you could use 2 of the same or 2 different, I think 2 different gives it a little something extra.

  
Make it a loop, stick a small piece of tape at the seam to hold it in place.
Pinch in the center. 

Fold in half long ways.  Make sure things are looking symmetrical. 

Now fold the sides up, making an accordion fold 

Hold in the center, this will be the back.

This is the front.  Use a small piece of tape for the center, I decided to use my inside color, turquoise.

Tape the center, and fluff out the sides with your fingers.

Use a bobby to make it a hair bow, just slide it under the duct tape on the back.

I love these so much!
