In gift wrap emergencies when you’ve got the present but need some wrapping, here’s an idea for turning a magazine page into a bow. There may be better ways to stick this thing together, but I used what I had on hand: staples and adhesive glue dots. Double stick tape or brads should work, too.

Cut a magazine page lengthwise into 9 strips, 3/4″ wide. Leave 3 of the strips full length. Cut one inch off 3 of the strips. Cut two inches off 2 of the strips. Cut the last strip down to 3 1/2″ long.

If you’re using a magazine that’s 10 1/2″ tall, you’ll end up with:
3 strips, 10 1/2″ x 3/4″
3 strips, 9 1/2″ x 3/4″
2 strips, 8 1/2″ x 3/4″
1 strip, 3 1/2″ x 3/4″

Twist each strip to form a loop at both ends and staple it in the center. Shape the last, short strip into a circle and secure it with a glue dot.

Layer the three longest pieces on top of each other, spacing them evenly and securing each with a glue dot. Add the next two groups of pieces, doing the same. And finally, stick the loop into the center.

Use other papers, like a map of your city. Here’s Chicagoland. Anybody see your street?
