Since the gift recipients were so young I didn't think they would care about a card so I used the plain paper to my advantage and wrote it right on the package!
This traditional gift bow was made with How About Orange's tutorial found here. Instead of a magazine page (which she uses in her tutorial) I used a coordinating scrapbook paper and cut it in to larger strips for a larger bow. I ended up only using 7 of the 9 strips from the tutorial since mine were wider than hers. So don't be afraid to experiment and just use her directions for a technique guide (satin ribbon would also be a great material for this!)
The larger bow is made of vintage pattern paper. I cut a small stack of about 5 inches by 7 inches then folded them like a fan and secured with two staples (it's just like making a pompom but only fluff one side).
