Properly dressed for the occasion

As I was finishing the card from my last post I decided that the bottle of wine that was to accompany it was woefully under dressed. I started by trying to tie a simple paper knot around it, but it quickly became an actual tie.

The silver paper I was using was not really paper but the plasticy gift wrapping that you can never get sellotape to stick to. The flexibility made tying the tie quite easy and then it had to have a collar which was just a strip of paper folded in half.

After that I couldn’t resist making a ribbon bow tie with wing tip collar.
I will never again, take wine out without first making sure it’s properly dressed.
