Step 4: Create the collar
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.
Step 5: Complete the shirt
Bring the bottom end up and tuck it underneath the top flaps (the shirt collar). Now you have your basic shirt shape!
Step 6: Add a personal message
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.
Step 7: Accessorize the shirt
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.
