For any Holiday, I always try to make some kind of do-it-yourself craft. As a kid, we would in school for Mother's and Father's Day. I guess I kept that tradition going. I love homemade gifts. It shows the effort and love you have for that person. So this year for Father's Day, I made a Tie-Card which is perfect!
We all know Dad is sick of getting real ties and I guarantee this will be his favorite one! It is super easy. The hardest part I had, was trying to find buttons in the house! I couldn't find ones that match, but I found 2 that were close enough and turned out great! The tie pattern, is a free print-out I came across. It matched perfect with the black card-stock. With the left over ties, I decided to make another project; My Tie Banner. I love combining two different do-it-yourself's with one!
Start by folding your piece of Card-Stock in half, hamburger style
Let dry and enjoy giving to Dad!
What You Need:
- Elmer's Glue
- 1 piece of Card-Stock (your choice in color)
- 2 buttons
- Tie printable (click link)
How To Make:
- Fold the piece of Card-Stock in half (hamburger style)
- Measure about 1 inch down from the top of the fold and then with scissors, cut into the paper about 1-1 1/2 inches over towards the center.
- There will be 2 flaps on each side of the paper.
- Glue the tie print-out in the center of the paper and glue the flaps over the tie.
- Then glue the 2 buttons onto the outside of the flaps.
- Make necessary adjustments. I had to cut off about an inch of paper because I thought the shirt looked too wide.
- Let dry and enjoy giving to Dad!
