Sure, you can go the Hallmark route this Father's Day, but homemade cards are just so much better — especially when they're shaped liked little mini dress shirts and are so stinkin' cute you can't even stand it. If the dad in your life suits up for work every day, you really can't go wrong with this easy Father's Day card DIY.
You can make your own quirky Father's Day shirt card — using any paper pattern to match Dad's favorite shirt — in just a few simple steps:
Throughout the craft, it's important to create crisp folds. A bone folder can help make this easier.
If using decorative paper, turn the paper over so the right side is facing down. Fold the paper in half.
Lay the paper flat and fold each side up into the center fold. Open up paper and lay it flat.
Take the bottom left-hand corner and fold it in to the first fold line. Repeat on the other side.
Close the folds back up so the outside sides align with the center fold.
Take the bottom side of the paper and fold it up just beyond the upside-down V. Make a nice, crisp fold.
Open bottom fold out again.
Where the paper joins in the middle of the center V, take the inside point and fold it out to the left side edge of paper.
Repeat on the other side. Note: the paper will come up slightly on the bottom.
Take the bottom of the paper and fold it up to just beyond the upside down V. Crease it nice and sharp.
