Towel Origami - Dress Shirt and Tie

Once upon a time I had a clamorous job at a Holiday Inn cleaning up after people. It was magical. In this amazing kingdom that constantly smelled of beach, I learned a few fun towel tricks. Today I'll show you how to make a dress shirt and tie. Super easy. All you need is a hand towel and a wash cloth. 

Dress shirt and tie towel origami. 

Lay out hand towel upside-down. 

Fold each side in to meet in the middle. 

Turn folded towel over. 

Now fold in half, but unevenly so the top overlaps the bottom a little.

On the overlapping side, open the towel up.

Fold the top under and shape the front like a shirt collar. 

Now lay your wash clothe flat. 

Fold one corner in unevenly, so the bottom is fatter and the top makes a point. 

Have the other corner mirror the shape, folding over as needed so the edges don't so when you flip it over. 

Position the tie towel on the shirt towel, overlapping a bit. 

Tuck under the tip of the tie into where the collar is. 

There we go! Completed dress shirt and tie. 

This is fun and easy and makes your bathroom a little fancier for guests. I like to try and pick out designs and colors that would actually be used for a shirt and tie, but that's just me.
