Bows for Gift Boxes: Users Guide & Best Materials


It’s the holiday season again, and you know what that means: gift-giving! If you’re looking for some inspiration for how to dress up your presents this year, this article got you covered. Here are a few of the best tastic ideas on gift boxes and bows.

1. Ribbon-Tied Bows

For this look, start by tying a bow with your ribbon. Then cut off the excess length at the top and bottom of the bow and glue (or staple) it to the sides of your box. The result is an elegant looking package that’s also easy to open!

2. Stamped Faux Bows

For these bows, start by stamping them onto paper or cardstock with a rubber stamper in an image like snowflakes or birds. You can then glue them onto your box lid or wrap them around a gift tag before securing them with ribbon or twine. This technique works great with any kind of stamping tool — from hand-cut stamps to rubber stamps from your craft store!

Best Material Bows for Gift Box Wrapping

With so many options, it can be hard to know which material will work best for your needs. Here are some of the best materials that make bows for gift box wrapping:

Paper Bag Ribbon

Paper bag ribbon is one of the most common types of ribbon around and it’s easy to see why. Not only does it come in an array of colors, but it also has a natural look that blends well with most other types of bows. You’ll find this type of ribbon at just about any store that sells ribbon and even some craft stores carry them as well.

Hemp twine Bow

Hemp twine is made from hemp fibers and cotton fibers that have been twisted together into yarn. It’s very strong and durable, which makes it perfect for tying on packages without worrying about fraying or breaking off at the knot. It comes in many different colors and textures, so you’ll find one that fits your needs perfectly!

Felt Bow

Felt is a soft and squishy fabric made from wool or fur. It’s very flexible and can be cut into different shapes using scissors or a rotary cutter. Felt is also washable, so it’s ideal for making bows for gift boxes that will be used repeatedly.

Fabric Bows

Fabric is another popular material for making bows for gift wrapping purposes because it has a variety of uses in fashion design and home decorating projects as well as being useful for gift box wrap bows. Fabric comes in many different designs and colors so you can use them to match whatever theme you’re going with at any given time


A bow is a beautiful way to make your gift look more attractive. You can combine many different materials to make simple bows for wrapping gift boxes. The best part about these bows is that you can do it yourself at home.

The DIY Gift-bow is about as simple as it gets for a great, homemade bow. You can use a wide variety of materials—both man-made and natural—to make a pretty bow that isn’t too big and won’t obscure the gift box. And they’re easy to make, so you can spend time making gifts instead of trying to tie ribbon bows.
