I am using one strip of paper to make the bows:
Size of paper to make a small bow: 1″ x 7″
Size of paper to make a medium bow: 1″ x 10″
Size of paper to make a large bow: 1.5″ x 10″
A small strip of 1/4″ paper to close the bow

Step 1:
On two ends of the paper, punch a notch to make the tail of the bow.

For the medium and large bow, puncha notch at 2″ on both ends and at 5″.

Step 3:
Use a pencil to curl the paper a bit to make the bow to have a more dimension look.

Step 4:
Fold 2 ends of the tails toward the middle of the paper.
