DIY folded paper bow tie


Justina Yang of Fiber Lab has invented a papercraft bow tie and made the template available as a PDF. I looooove it. See her post here to grab the folding diagram. If you try folding this yourself and end up with a crumpled paper ball, you can always order one from the Fiber Lab Etsy shop.

I'm going to have my library's origami class make me one of these. Last year, I had to borrow a bow tie from my co-workers husband for a princess tea party...ok, don't ask..mostly because they are so expensive. Now I can make one for less and if it breaks after one use, it's all good! Thanks!

It will be awesome, and you'll DEFINITELY have the coolest tie.
