STEP 1 : The Supplies you’ll need to make this craft are …  Sheet of Cardstock paper –  Scrap of Scrapbook Pattern *Bolder the Pattern the more fun* –  Pair of Scissors –  Tape Runner or Glue Stick
STEP 2 : Draw a Necktie design onto your scrap of scrapbook paper like so. This is where bolder the pattern and colors of the scrapbook paper the more fun the card will look.
STEP 3 : Cut out the tie shape. It doesn’t have to be perfect ! ( ‘u^)
STEP 4 : Take your White Cardstock sheet and evenly fold in the Left and Right sides *Look @ Example Photo Below*
EXAMPLE PHOTO : Here is how it should look once you fold in the Left and Right side. Try to make this as even as possible.
STEP 5 : Take the upper left corner and fold it downward making a slight angled triangular shape.
EXAMPLE PHOTO : It should look like this once you have folded down the upper left corner down.
STEP 6 : Do the same thing to the right corner. It should look like the photo below when finished. Isn’t it resembling a shirt collar now ? (n_n) This is getting pretty exciting now !!
STEP 8 :Cut the lower corners off to make a slight angle to each corner. ;D
STEP 13 :Glue on the Pocket to the front of the greeting card and put a little glue on one side of the tie and place the tie just under the fold corner flaps. Doesn’t it look like Daddy’s Shirt and Tie now ?? 😀
Step 14 : TADA !! Your handmade Shirt and Tie Father’s Day card is complete !! Ready for your heartfelt greetings to be written inside.
STEP 15 : FINAL DETAILS ! Write Happy Father’s Day in the corner of the card or a quick joke to give Dad a chuckle before he reads the heartfelt greeting inside.
