Father's Day Card Idea

While seaching for chery2's craft at the Martha Stewart Living site, I discovered this cute idea for a Father's Day card... it looks pretty easy... sort of an origami shirt and tie!

It's still early enough to use a scrap piece of paper and give it a try so you'll be ready!

Now who besides Martha has decorative 8½x14" paper around the house! If my math is correct, you can cut some 12" square scrapbooking paper to 7¼x12" or evem standard 8½x11" paper to 6¾x11". It really doesn't matter if the paper is exactly the same size as Martha's or even the same proportions... just use what you have. The shirt may just be in a little different proportions!

RE: Father's Day Card Idea

that is cute. I think we did one in class years ago. I have a card around somewhere I made for Father's day. a lot less complicated (size wise) I'll have to see if I can dig it up. I'm trying to scan all cards I find or that my kids have saved for me. I haven't found that exploding one yet but I will!!
