Ties certainly are a fail-safe gift on Father's Day, so why not feature them in your card this year? Simple and sweet, this shirt and tie card is sure to make Dad smile.

Also, the shirt pattern can be worked off of pretty easily. Invites to a luau? Find paper that looks like a Hawaiian shirt. Geeky friend? Add a pocket protector and some leaky pens. Bond, James Bond? Make a blazer, cummerbund, and bow-tie...you get the idea.

Step 1: Materials

Turns out you don't need much to make this card:
  • 1 sheet legal-seized paper (8 1/2-by-14-inch)
  • some patterned paper for the tie
  • scissors
  • optional: glue
I didn't have any decorative paper that was big enough for the shirt, so I simply opted for some standard white paper from my printer, and some origami paper for the tie.
<p>I absolutely love this idea for a card to dad! It surprised him so much that I bet he remembered that time when he opened it....? Thx so much!</p>
