Striped shirt closed

It’s a prim and proper shirt for the man in your life!  Isn’t it cute?  It’s not hard to make at all.  And wait till you see what happens…

The little card pull right out from the inside of the shirt.   Is this adorable or what??  I got the idea from my fellow Pal Amy Hoptay.  She displayed it on our Pal’s Blog Hop earlier this month and immediately I knew I wanted to try it!!  Here’s a link to Amy’s card so you can see what she did.

You start with a piece of Designer Series Paper (this is from the Lullaby DSP) cut 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″.  Score it lengthwise at 2-1/8″ from each end.  Fold the ends together to the center and you have your shirt ~ almost 🙂  Adhere the sides of the shirt to the back of the paper at the very bottom only.  I used Fast Fuse to hold it tight.  Fold back your flaps to form the collars of the shirt.  I used Mini Glue Dots to hold the flaps down.

For the inner card that pulls out, use a piece of card stock (in this case I used Lost Lagoon).  I think I cut this at 4″ x 4-1/2″.  Give it a test to make sure it slides down into the shirt.  Stamp your sentiment on a piece of Whisper White card stock 3-3/4″ x 4-1/4″ and adhere it to the other sheet.  The bow is made from our new wonderful Bow Builder Punch and stock on the collar with Mini Glue Dots.  Put a few coordinating buttons on the shirt and there you go, a great guy card!
