Wrapped with a Bow

I've had the most productive few days! So many things that I have been working on that I can't tell you about though because most of it is in preparation for Christmas and I don't want to spoil the surprise of anyone's Christmas present.

I did do some wrapping though! Want to see a little peek?

Wire ribbon is excellent for making the perfect bow. Here's a rundown:

Make a loop the size you want.
Then copy that on the other side pinching in the middle.

Wrap the rest oft he ribbon around the two loops in the middle where you were pinching. 
Do this a few times to secure the bow. The wire in the ribbon will help hold it in place.
When you have the bow the way you like...
...cut off the excess.

And glue it down with a hot glue gun.

Then I just glue it right down to the gift! 
No tying needed easy bow!

Have you started gift wrapping yet? Any cute tricks or ideas? I still have lots more to wrap so I could use them!
