The holiday season often means lots of gift exchanges. As a papercrafter, I always strive to create pretty packages with handmade toppers and gift wrap. I love using my signature paper bow template, but it is always nice to have options. Here are some brand new papercut bows to beautify your holiday gift giving!
Download the SVG file to use with a cutting machine, or download the PDF if you are cutting by hand. I recommend cutting these on text weight rather than cardstock – cardstock would be too stiff for these papercut bows. We chose a fall color scheme (of course) using a mix of metallic papers from Paper-Papers (links below), plus two gorgeous deep purple colors we found at Paper Source. If you are using the PDF, I would suggest printing onto white text weight paper and then using a craft knife to create the slits in the papercut bows. Once you trim the design, you can assemble the bows with a hot glue gun. Fold the flaps in and then glue the ends to the center. Next, wrap the center piece around to form the two ribbons that hang below the bow.
When you’re finished, stick them onto gifts with regular scotch tape or double stick adhesive! As you can see, we also used these bows to dress up our wine bottle gifts. For a tutorial on how to make a bottle gift bag out of your favorite wrapping paper, watch my instructional video on gift wrapping. Or, check out how we styled these papercut bows into our bridal party gift set.

Hello, how do I print these bows in different sizes. The PDF print is one size. Thank you
The best way is to print at different percentages (print at 50-75% size depending how small you want, or 120% or so to go larger).
These look great. Can’t wait to try the svg out.
I’m thrilled to give these bows a try. Looks like something I might be able to pull off – have had no luck with bows in the past, wish me luck!
Good luck!! 🙂
