Shirt Case

This shirt case is perfect for a handkerchief or necktie. Write a message on a small label or card and place inside the case.

Approximate Time: 15 minutes



  • 8 1/2x11 inch lightweight cardstock
  • patterned paper
  • glue
  • pencil
  • ruler
  • craft knife
  • scissors
  • finished size: 4x10 3/8 inches


  1. Make a pocket from lightweight cardstock.
  2. Snip the upper edge of pocket at the front center, 1 inch long. Then fold to make a collar.
  3. Using a pencil, draw a necktie shape from patterned paper. Cut it out.
  4. For added dimension, trace the top part of the necktie; trim and glue on top of that.
  5. Glue the necktie to the case and then glue the collar.


Note: You can adapt the design to create a shirt bag. You can also use various types of paper such as scrapbooking paper or wrapping paper.
