Origami Necktie and Shirt Card for Father's Day

I have noticed during the past three months I have had a lot of visitors coming to view my origami necktie and shirt card for Father's Day posted June 16, 2012.  

This evening I was checking the link for the tutorial and realized that it has disappeared from Paper Craft Planet. Sorry I didn't notice it sooner.  I did some searching but didn't come up with the original tutorial.  However, I will link some other tutorials below.

Since I wasn't able to locate the original tutorial I decided to look for my personal pattern.

Begin with an 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of paper.  Lightweight is easier than cardstock for the shirt. As you can see the folds are not very crisp with the cardstock. 

Fold into the center lengthwise

Make a crease starting at the bottom fold and fold out.
This will make the sleeve.

Turn paper over and fold top down about 1 inch. 

Turn back over and fold top toward center.
The collar and neck will appear.

Fold up so that the bottom of the shirt 
meets just under the collar

 Add sticky tape and your necktie

The neck tie is very simple. 
 Use a paper 4 X 4 inches.   
Follow the instructions in the following Tutorial.  
This tutorial is without sleeves if that is your preference.

Here is a smaller version of my shirt...way cute!  
Nice to add to the front of a card!

The following tutorial is a 

It also includes photos of step by step paper folding instructions.  
What a fun way to give money to the man you love!

Hope this helps!
