Picture of Shirt Folder
This is my first instructable so let me know if you like it.

The Shirt Folder is a device made of cardboard (or any other firm material) that makes folding your shirts in 4 steps. Place, Fold, Fold, Fold.

With each fold it creates strait creases on the shirt reducing the amount of wrinkles.

This is a eco-friendly project.

Step 1: Gather material and tools

Before you begin you will need to collect the material and tools for this project.

Material
- Cardboard Box or Cardboard Sheets. You can get this from just about anywhere, I got mine from work. Go to a store and ask if you could have some. You will need about 2 or 3 boxes.
- Tape. This will be used as the joints. The wider the better.

Tools
- Box Knife or Scissors. You need a cutting tool. I find the box knife works best. Be careful when using sharp tools.

Step 2: Middles Pieces

You will need two middle pieces for the Shirt Folder. Both of them will be the same size.

Cut out two pieces from your cardboard with these dimensions.
- Width: Approximately 12 inces or 30 cm
- Height: Approximately 16 inces or 40 cm

You will need to tape these together on one side for a total height of 80 cm. Do not tape the other side now, we will talk about that later.

Step 4: Taping the other side (Optional)

You can now tape the other side but you need to fold in each part before taping or you will not be able to use it properly.

 or you could just fold the part of the shirt that is hanging out so it isnt out side of the panel.

does this work with all shirt sizes?
agnivohneb (author)  dvnfntn5 years ago
It should. I have 2XL shirts and they go over the edge just a bit. If you would like you could adjust the size of the panels to work with smaller or larger shirts.

Sometimes it's not the originality, it's the execution and intent. I know me, and an armload of my buds could use one or three. It's bad enough we laundry pool, but I can't stand the folding afterwards. This might make it a little more bearable.

i love the idea and i'll have to try this myself. as others have said it's not exactly origional but it is usefull. being part packrat i think that this helps organisation and space alot.
agnivohneb (author)  lupin5 years ago
I know its not that original but I haven't seen anything similar on Instructables so i decided to do it.
