Make an Easy Origami Shirt Card
An origami shirt card is an excellent craft project for Father's Day or the birthday of a special dad, uncle or brother. Choose a paper pattern that is similar to a favorite shirt in his closet, so it truly reflects his personality.
Begin with an 8.5 by 11 inch piece of paper.
Fold the paper in half and unfold.
Fold the paper in half horizontally and unfold.
Fold both the top and bottom halves of the paper into the middle crease.
Turn the paper over and fold the right side down, approximately ¼ inch to ½ inch. Flip the paper back over.
Fold the corners into the center, aligning them so they are next to each other. This step completes the collar.
Using the center vertical crease as a guide, fold the other two corners out, as shown in the picture at the left.
Fold the left side of the paper up until the straight edge is underneath the shirt collar.
Affix a brass fastener or button to hold the shirt and collar in place.
Glue the shirt to a half-folded card. Write a greeting on the shirt, or add buttons or a tie to the shirt and the greeting above or below it.
