Mini Christmas project #1

Well. It's official. You simply cannot capture the beautiful glow of Christmas trees, with the lights on. See? 

But, I want you to see the tree still. So deal with it. Anyway, this is my first mini Christmas tutorial, and it is about how to make the magnificent burlap bow on top of my mini tree. First, get burlap. Preferably big fat burlap, I used this one:
The pencil for comparison. Then, fold accordion style like the paper fans everyone made in first grade. I know. I did it too. Fold it so it looks like this:

And take ribbon to tie it in the middle. There you have it! Perfect bow! You're welcome. 

And to finish, a dresser. Cuz that's my thing.
