  1. 1

    Lay the tie out flat on a clean, flat surface.

  2. 2

    Roll the tie beginning at the wider end and ending at the narrower end. Be sure not to wrinkle the tie as you roll.

  3. 3

    Slide the tie into a paper towel tube.

  4. 4

    Stuff tissue paper into either end of the paper towel tube to keep the tie from sliding around.

  5. 5

    Cover the entire tube, including the ends in several layers of tissue paper. Tape the tissue as you go to secure it in place.

  6. 6

    Cut a piece of wrapping paper that is big enough to wrap around the tube several times with several inches of paper sticking out from the ends of the tube.

  7. 7

    Lay the tube near one of the longer edges of the wrapping paper and tape the paper to the tube.

  8. 8

    Roll the wrapping paper around the tube several times and secure it with several pieces of tape along the length of the tube.

  9. 9

    Twist the ends of the paper that are sticking out from either end of the tube.

  10. 10

    Tie a curling ribbon in a knot around each twisted end to secure the twists in place.

  11. 11

    Hold the ends of the curling ribbon between your thumb and the edge of a scissors blade and pull outward to curl the ribbons.
