How to Make a DIY Father’s Day Card That Matches Dad’s Favorite Shirt

Tie & hanky

To add a pocket, cut a small square of decorative paper and round-out the bottom edges. (Tip: use a circle template to get a round bottom.) Using the same paper as the personalized message, free-hand cut a small shape to serve as the hanky. Secure it to the shirt with glue or sticky tape.

Bow tie & buttons

To add a bow tie, cut a small rectangle and slightly snip the corners on a diagonal. Add buttons by using a hole punch. Secure it to the shirt with a dab of glue or sticky tape.

Wrapping paper also works as a substitute for cardstock or decorative scrapbooking paper. This one was made from leftover Christmas wrapping paper. Wrapping paper wrinkles a little easier, though, so if you’re using it, plan to make one as a mockup or be very precise when making the first folds.
