Origami Necktie and Shirt Card

Today I have been busy getting ready for our Father's Day festivities and two birthday celebrations in our family.  But as I visiting with Nancy today she directed me to this wonderful turtorial on Paper Craft Planet.....a quick and easy Father's Day card!!!  So I ended up making 12 of them.  I made three for the father's in our family and 9 for my primary children to give to their fathers. These are the two version that I made.  The green shirt is made with cardstock...which I would not recommend.  It took lots of scoring and just took much longer to put together.  The other papers are all lightweight typing or craft papers....definitely much easier to fold.  This project took less than an hour to choose the papers and to make all 12 card.  The shirt is made from an 8 1/2 X 11 sheet of paper and the tie is a 4X4 square.   There is room on the inside of the shirt or on the back to leave a message!

There are several tutorials on Paper Craft Planet.  At the end of this tutorial you will see other versions.  The first version is without sleeves.  I chose one of the version at the end of this tutorial.

Happy Father's Day!  If you forgot to get a card you can make this one in less than 5 minutes!  Enjoy!

Hugs!  Judi

  1. You beat me. I was going to post the ones I had made. Yours turned out so cute. They were really a hit at Primary today. The children loved making these for their dads.
