What a great idea! My first thought: this is something that will keep my boys busy for hours (and I don’t think my decor can handle one more paper snowflake, see Coffee Filter Snowflakes)
The Fiskars Paper Trimmer makes making bows 10 times faster! This trimmer has a 10-sheet cutting capacity meaning you can cut out 10 sheets at one time. I use it all the time. It’s under $20 and usefor for scrapbooking, the homeschool workbox system, and all kinds of crafts. And its safe for children–no sharp edges.
Let your kidos watch the video below, give them a a stack of old magazines and let them make a bazillion bows to have all year. Have a cont4st for the best colored bow.
Watch the video to see how easy this craft is but imagine how quicker it would be with a paper trimmer.
