Step 1: What You Will Need:

Since this bow is relatively simple, all you need is: One paperclip thing like in the photo, one smallish, thin rubber band like in the photo, some scotch tape, and colored pencils (for ammunition).

Step 2: Making the Main Part of the Bow

First, take the paperclip thing and bend it into a bow like shape. For more detail, look at the photos.

Step 3: Preparing to String the Bow

Before you can string the bow, you need to take the very ends of the bow, and bend them to make a place to hold the rubber band. Check out the picture for more details.

Step 4: Stringing the Bow

Ok, now it's time to finish up making the bow. First, take the rubber band and put it in the bends that you just made. Then, secure it tightly with scotch tape, and you have yourself a MiniBow for colored pencils.
