A fun surprise! What movies will you get?

These hand-made gift bows are fashioned using strips of film that have been discarded by movie studios.

Because the reels for a full-length movie are closely guarded (and extremely expensive to produce), the movie studios do not hand them out to just anyone. Movie trailers, on the other hand, are advertisements and are more accessible.

However, the studios do not take requests. So, each Film Reel Gift Bow has a surprise waiting within: what movie trailer is it made from?! 

Each bow is made from a strip of film reel from a Hollywood trailer.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: Can I choose the movies?

Answer: No. But that's part of the fun! You could get a mash-up of Toy Story, Dogma, and The Pelican Brief. The selection of movies is random, but normally confined to movies released within the past ten to fifteen years.

Question: Are there different movies in each set?

Answer: Yes. There are always three different movie trailers per set of bows.

Question: Can I unwrap the bow and watch it?

Answer: We suppose that you could. However, there is probably only about 1-2 seconds worth of footage per bow. 

Question: Are all of the images contained in the bows safe for children?

Answer: Yes. The trailers used for the Film Reel Gift Bows are approved for all audiences.

Question: Can the Film Reel Gift Bow be reused?

Answer: Absolutely. Film stock is incredibly durable and very resistant to puncture or tears. The bows are held together with a brass brad, so they will not come apart easily. These gift bows can be reused many times. If, however, the adhesive on the back loses its stickiness, you could use some Joe's Sticky Stuff or a piece of tape (hint, hint).
