I may have found the perfect accessory for that fancy Near Year's Eve party you are going to! Yes, look totally dapper with this bowtie made entirely out of paper. It's sophistication with a twist.

PS I can't promise that this DIY is super easy. This video is not to necessarily teach you how to make each fold, but to demonstrate the general crease pattern. If you don't have a lot of experience with folding tessellations, I'd strongly suggest that you try the bracelet DIY first. It will help you get a sense of how these folds work. Good luck!

Here I am using Canson Mi-Teintes drawing paper, but anything around 98 lb (160 gsm) should work.
