Fun Father's Day Cards

Happy Fathers Day –

June is always a busy month for us – lots of family and friend’s birthdays and of course, Father's Day. I’m a confessed scrapbook addict – more precisely, a paper addict. I really need a 12 step program for it. I don’t often, however use my stash to make cards. My sister makes gorgeous ones.

So I decided yesterday to see what I might find to be creative. After roaming the net for a bit I saw some examples of an origami shirt. I finally ended up using these directions (with an 8.5 x 11 piece of paper) - they were just a bit more visually oriented.

And after a couple of tries ended up with these...

They are the perfect size for gift cards and I thought they turned out great!

I love having some extra time in the summer to play :)

Onward and upward...

My friend Steve is a paper crafts nut (he and his kids like craft time). They would love that shirt.

That is neat. I saw a completed "money shirt" yesterday and wondered how it was folded.

Thanks for the link Akedz, and thank you for the information on this fun papercraft.
