For Father's Day, I am giving my father money. I thought it would be cute to make a twist on the tie card by cutting out a pocket and putting cash there!
Total Time: 20 minutes
- construction paper
- Exacto knife
- Figure out what color you want your shirt to be (which will be your base). I went with a simple white construction paper. Cut out a size you want the shirt to be (a square shape) and set aside.
- Select a construction paper that you would like for the tie. I went with this pretty light green horizontal stripes and cut an even square (4" x 4")
- Fold the square shape diagonally together.
- Now open the flap back to a square and fold the ends to the center crease like a kite shape.
- Flip the kite shape over.
- Fold the tip about 1 inch down and then fold that tip down.
- Now flip over and fold the sides in one more time to the center.
- Cut a piece of left over construction paper for the tie. You only need a small square piece, or a strip as I used here, then glue to form a tie knot shape.
- Now back to your shirt, from the top about one inch down, cut 1.5" it slit on both sides to form the shirt.
- Fold the slits down so the two edges will hit. If they do not, slowly cut the slit longer.
- The brads are optional, but I used green brads. I used a ruler to line up where I wanted the brads to be and made a dot mark with a pen for a guideline.
- Using a thumbtack gently poke hole.
- Insert brads into the hole. And glue or tape the flaps down.
- Figure out in what position you want your tie to be. The tie can be above the shirt collar or underneath, then glue down. I went with the tie being underneath the collar.
- To make this a money holder card, using an Exacto knife - I cut a slit for a pocket wide enough to fit a $100 bill in.
- Optional: If you don't like the slit revealed, you can cut a pocket shape to conceal the silt and glue it on.
- Cut a piece of paper to cover the back of the card (clue the edges down only). That way the money does not fall out and there is a spot for you to write a message.
