Shirt Folding Helper

About: Thanks for Viewing

These shirt folder helpers are pretty cool. I made mine out of cardboard and duct tape but you could make it out of stronger materials for a more perminent set up. This worked surprisingly good, the point of it is to help fold clothes faster. I found if you have all your shirts flattened that it helps fold them faster and better than I would by hand. all That you do is make 6 squares the size of a tee shirt folded. Then just tape all the six pieces of card board together as the pictures show.
