How to Make Swans Out of Foil

Impress your guests by wrapping leftovers into a swan-shaped package to sail home with them. Aluminum foil folds and molds into a simple but elegant food carrier, often used in Asian restaurants to box food-to-go after a meal. Foil swans are a thoughtful touch for care packages of homemade treats as well.
