Tutorial | T-Shirt Card

I've received requests from my readers about the Father's Day card I made for the Men "dads"  in my life. So I thought, why not give a tutorial here in my blog.

I'm sure you've seen tutorials similar flooding in the internet but let me just show you how I did mine.



I used an A3 size decorative paper bought from Visayan Bookstore. It's one of the places I love scouting for Nice and cheap craft materials.


Turn the paper upside down, with the printed part facing the table.

Vertical Fold


Sleeve Fold

Open the Paper again and fold as follows.



This is prolly the only tricky part in folding but practice makes perfect. In no time you'll get the hang of it. Promise.

Collar Fold

Turn the paper upside down, Now we will fold the opposite end for the t-shirt's collar. 

Fold as follows.  


Remember, whatever you do on one side you do it to the opposite side too.


And then do the same with the opposite side.



Fold the bottom end and insert it to the collar. And TADA.... 


That's it! 

Now the rest is up to your imagination. Embellish. Embellish. Embellish. You can add a tie, or draw a pocket perhaps, or even a button will make a cute addition to this card.

Here's what I did last year's Father's day. You can read about it here.



Happy weekend everyone. Hope you enjoyed this one :)

Hello there. I love DIY projects like this. I saw this a lot of times during parties and always thought it's hard to make. Your step-by-step photos are very encouraging.

Oh, wow! I remember doing this back in highschool when my friends and I used to write notes to each other. I've forgotten how to do it though. Now thanks to your tutorial, I can do it again.

This design is steller! You obviously know how to
keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was
almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost.

..HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than
that, how you presented it. Too cool!
