dc.descriptionIn this tutorial, you will need: 2 bottles, 1 furoshiki cloth in non-slippery material. The size of this should be about three times the length of the bottles. Steps to Follow: 1. Spread out the furoshiki in a diamond shape with the pattern side facing down.

2. Stand the two bottles side-by-side in the middle of the furoshiki cloth.

3. Take the right and left corners and make one knot right above the mouth of the bottles.

4. Now take the bottom corner, the corner near you, and place it between the two bottles to sandwich the cloth.

5. Pull out that cloth in the back and cross it with the remaining cloth and bring it forward. 6. Make a mamusubi or tie twice in the middle of the bottles with the two corners. 7. Now depending on how large your furoshiki is, there are a couple ways to make the handle with the remaining tails above the mouth of the bottles. You can simply tie one more tie to make a mamusubi or you can twist the tails and then make a mamusubi or tie twice. 8. And now you’re done! How cool is it to carry around this present?! And if this was a present, your furoshiki cloth can be another present as itself without using any other disposable material!
dc.description.abstractIn this tutorial, we will show you how to wrap two bottles as a present. This method can be used to wrap if you do not have a large, flat and stable working space. It would also be a great gift or a party favor.

The video is designed as a supplemental hands-on material for teaching Japanese culture to elementary to junior high school students. This material was prepared by the East Asian Library at the University of Kansas.
