A big bow on top of a present is like icing on the cake; your gift wrapping wouldn't be complete without it! But why spend good money on wrapping paper adornments when you can easily make your own out of readily available supplies? This Yellow Pages Gift Bow is one of our favorites because it uses the pages of a phone book to create a festive present topper!

I am sure I do not have any yellow pages lying around. But I know I have some magazines that I have stacked up in the corner. These will be a great application to use some of the pages if not all of them. I usually donate my old magazines to the local elementary because they are always using them in class projects.

What a pretty bow made from something we just throw away! I was glad to see that the instructions were written clearly, because I couldn't figure out how one would make a bow like that. Almost any paper could be used to make bows of that type. I think even wrapping paper would work.

Wow! Excellent use of an item that would wind up in our landfills if not recycled. I don't even know if we still have a yellow pages but if I can find one lying around, guess what I will be making?!
