You can get creative with this craft by picking your own colors and patterns. The solid shirt looks great but I think a stripped or polka-dotted shirt would look pretty spiffy as well.

While it is nice to keep your crafts to remember them by, anyone would be very lucky for you to gift it to them. You can show your dad how much you appreciate them by giving them your cute little paper shirt.

Instructions

  1. Select at least 2 different colored craft papers; one for the shirt and one for the tie. Trace the tie pattern on a paper and the shirt patterns on the other selected paper. Cut out the traced papers nicely.
  2. Take the rectangle paper cutout and fold it into half lengthwise and then unfold it again. Attach the 2 small square cutouts on both sides of the rectangle, right below the folding line along the middle. These 2 small squares are the sleeves of the paper shirt card.
  3. Fold the rectangle paper along its half fold again. Grab the collar cutout and fold both sides of it in the same direction slightly to 45 degrees.
  4. Attach the tie on the folded rectangle card by aligning the straight side of the tie with the closed end of the shirt card.
  5. Attach the collar on the closed-end as well but outwards, right above the tie.
  6. You can use colorful sharpies to draw lines and borders on the paper shirt card.
