Origami Shirts

This is a fun card to make using a rectangular piece of paper. I love the look of printed book paper so this is what I used to create these little shirts. Check out your library for discarded books. I use books that have discarded due to poor condition. There are quite a few video tutorials on You Tube to create Origami shirts. I watched this one.

Supplies:  Scrapbook paper, notebook paper, magazine paper, book print paper,  card stock,  wrinkled ribbon, button brads, glue stick.

Use the scrapbook paper or the book print paper to create eye pleasing layers.  I like to recycle mail or magazine paper to create the little banners.  Cut small pieces of the notebook paper to write down your sentiment. 

To make  the tag you will need to cut your paper to measure: 2-3/4 inches by 5 inches.

To make the shirt for the greeting card cut your paper to measure: 4 inches by 7 inches.

Have fun making little shirts.  They are ideal for men birthday cards or Father's Day cards.
