Spring is a perfect time to add a pretty little bow on your packages and party decor. For this template I have included four sizes from the large bow that I used for my holiday decor to tiny version that I used for the mini bow oil cloth rings, along with two sizes in between. These are outline templates that you can print onto your pretty paper, or print in card stock and use to outline onto you paper. For those of you who have a cutting machine I am also including the SVG file to make these bows. Once you have your bows cut and ready to assemble, you can use the tutorial in this post. Enjoy the bow templates and let me know all the places you will be using them this spring! ~ Lia

This is perfect! I’ll definitely be making these to use on my son’s gifts for his birthday in a few weeks. I always want to put bows on his gifts but never want to spend the money on them. These paper bows will be a nice compromise 🙂

Hi, I need help. I joined the group but when I try to download the bow template, nothing happens. Is it suppose to open so I can print it? Thank you!
Hi Julie! If you are signed in (as a paid member), you’ll be able to download the templates. The PDF usually opens in a new browser window or will be saved to a Downloads folder, same as the SVG file. Hope that helps!
Can u do this on a phone or only a pc?
There is Design Space app for iPhone/iPad that allows you to cut projects, but the project would need to be loaded into Design Space from a computer.
Hi -on pinterset it says free download or print and cut file. But when I try its telling me I need a membership? Thanks
Hi Cathy! Some of our projects have been categorized incorrectly as freebies on Pinterest, sorry about that 🙁 But here is a link to all our free projects! https://liagriffith.com/craft/freebies-2/
Hi – do you make these bows and sell them??
Hi! Sorry, we only have the template available for download to DIY the paper bows 🙂
Were did you get these paper?
Did you print them?
Hi! We do design and print a lot of our own papers and gift wrap, but a few of these are double-sided scrapbook papers found at various craft and paper shops around town 🙂
Thank you so much for the template! I am preparing for a little girls birthday party later today & needed a paper bow template in a hurry. This is perfect and your such an angel to take the time to share it! Thank you!
Yay that’s great! Glad I could help 🙂
Hello. Thank you for this. I wanted a temporary to make bows for my little girls but you have given me lots of ideas. Should I print the templates out on A4 paper? X
Yes, A4 paper should work perfectly!
Thank you very much for these! 🙂

Thank you, it warms my heart!
Thank you so much for sharing! They are great!
Thank you, happy to hear you like them:)
These bows are so cute and exactly what I need at the moment as I’m working on a commission for Practical Publishing (in Australia), doing a collection of cards featuring paper bows. Your templates are so great that I couldn’t improve on them if I tried. (And believe me, I have tried!) What would you think if I placed a link to this entry in your blog, so that readers could download their own templates? You would get full acknowledgement of your work (which,by-the-way is AMAZING! Your ideas and tutorials are excellent and comprehensive.) Please let me know what you think. Cheers, Janelle
Hi Janelle, thank you for your message. You are very sweet! Yes you can include a link to this entry as long as I get acknowledgment. Cannot wait to see it!

I’m still trolling your posts to get caught up. So much goodness you share. Thanks a bunch Lia. Love everything you share with us. These bows are too cute, will be using these for sure. I had to get one of those portfolios with multiple pockets to keep all your projects posts in. Almost ready to get another one it’s getting so full. You are so admired and appreciated. Happy weekend
I need to write a book so you can have them all in one place! Haha.You are adorable.

You are welcome! I love these bows. 🙂
aaaw i like those paper bows of yours, i have seen them elsewhere and allways thought i must try this.

The idea of yours to add them to a pencil is briliant.
so thank you for the sharing your generousity to gave the templates for free and the tute.
I had never seen them when I posted my first one about 3 years ago! Now they are everywhere. Haha. I LOVE them!!

OMG! thanks so much Lia, these are a great freebie, thanks for sharing with us. Have a great weekend.
You are so welcome Lucia!
Ooohhh, you KNOW I am ALL over this! I absolutely love the idea of using the bows on straws and bottles. Your bow templates are one of the most versatile patterns ever and I’ve used them a billion times already. (Hence my need for a Cricut!)
Thanks Lisa! I love how you use them for your parties. . . so fun to watch your creative twist.
You are so generous with your talents. Thank you!
You are so welcome Teddee!
I am in love with the diamond pattern, is there any download for that?
Not yet. This is an actual gift wrap that I had printed with Spoonflower. You can order it there or stay tuned for a smaller printable version.
Oh my cuteness!!! LOVE those sweet bows on the straws. Pinned! Thanks for sharing the templates, Lia 🙂
Haha! Glad you like them!
This will certainly make my life easier. Thanks.
