Flip the paper over and go to the top. Fold the top portion over about 1/2-inch (approximating the measurement is fine) so there is a crease at the top.
Flip the paper over so the top crease is to the back. Bring the top left corner to the center fold so that it creates a triangle shape.
Repeat on the right side. Make sure folds are sharp.
Bring the bottom end up and tuck it underneath the top flaps (the shirt collar). Now you have your basic shirt shape!
To add a personal message inside the card, cut out a piece of cardstock that can fit inside the card. The one used here is approximately 3-1/2 inches by 5-1/2 inches. Secure it to shirt with glue or double-sided tape. Write dad a note.
Add embellishments to the outside of the shirt to give it some of dad’s style. Ideas to consider include a tie, pocket, bowtie, or buttons.
To make a tie: cut a 1/2-inch strip of decorative paper. If you know how to knot a tie, now’s the time to show your skills. If not, fake it by looping strip around the top until a faux knot is created.
Snip the bottom corners of the paper to create a pointed end. Secure to shirt with a dab of glue or double sided tape.
