Step 1: Download/print the Instructions

Download/print the origami instructions to create your tie, use the steps below to help if you get stuck.

Step 2: Cut Out a Large Square

Roll out your wrapping paper and cut out a square with sides of approximately 50-60cm in length. Fold it in half diagonally to help make the prefect square

Step 3: Fold Halves Together

Fold the square in on itself to meet the fold made in the previous step

Step 4: Fold the Top Down

Fold down the top portion so that it is level with the two pointed sides of the tie

Step 5: Fold Point Back on Itself

Fold this point back on itself about two thirds of the way back to the top of the tie

Step 6: Fold Back Again

Fold back again beyond the top of the tie

Step 7: Shape the Knot

Fold to make creases on both corners and then fold the corners back on themselves along this crease

Step 8: Tun Over and Fold in the Sides

Turn the tie over and fold both sides into the centre line. For a narrower tie, fold the paper over the centre line and secure with some tape.

Step 9: Attach Elastic Cord

Cut a suitable length of elastic cord and secure to the top of the tie using staples or hot glue.

Step 10: Decorate Your Tie

Complete your tie as you would your gifts, with some tags, bows, ribbons and anything else you fancy.

Step 11: Make Some More and Wear With Pride!

By now you'll be thinking how easy that was and how (not so) great it looks so make a few more and wear with pride!
