Measure and cut out, on the construction paper, 6  1/4" high to use as a ruler. Use a seam ripper to open the shirt on one side so you can cut it. Cut horizontally across and around the shirt so you end up with a long piece of fabric when opened. Repeat the last step so you end up with two long pieces.
