My First Origami Shirt

For some reason, I tend to struggle with making masculine cards. My FIL's birthday is Sunday, and of course, need to make him a card. I sat down and started thinking about it. Then I remembered the flood of cards at SCS that I had seen around Father's Day of the origami shirt cards. I went to look at a few for inspiration and find the instructions. Success! And I think this turned out pretty cute. (Cute and masculine go together, right?)

I used some older pattern paper I had on hand - I think it's by Provo Craft. I started to use brads as the buttons, but decided to see if I had any real buttons small enough to work first. I really would have liked to have 4 buttons so I could have put one right under the collar, but I only had 3 to work with. Oh well, I suppose 3 are fine. The stamp is from one of the clear Studio G $1 stamp sets.

Anyway, I think he'll like it.
