Cards for men!
Altough this idea is not original, I think it still is a great card design for the men in our lives (and I made my own pattern).





I made reusable cardboard pattern pieces.
(If you cannot read the text, that is because it is in Dutch and in my authentic handwriting...)

You'll need:
- Recycled cardboard (piza box, for instance), to make your pattern pieces. My pattern is not meant to be printed, you will have to draw your own, with the help of my pattern pieces picture.
- Pencil, ruler, scissors, and paper glue.
- A (double) blank cardstock card. I used brown ones.
- Stirdy white crafting paper for the shirt. Or any colour you like.
- A different colour crafting paper (single colour or decorated) for the tie.
- A small button.

Steps:
1. Cut out the large shirt piece (don't forget to cut out the triangle) and glue it to the card.
Tip: I made the piece a little too big and cut off the access paper after having glued it to the card. This way you get a nice fit.
2. Cut the tie out of a different kind of paper. Then cut out the tie knot again seperately. Glue it onto the tie (so the knot part is now double layered).
Tip: make the tie a little too long too and cut off the access afterwards.
3. Attach the tie to the card, by gluing the top part only! (You want to be able to lift up the tie later on, to attach the pocket.) Make it touch the lowest point of the triangle.
4. Attach the collar parts. Only glue a small line along the neck and shoulder edges! (You want the collar points unattached, for a three dimensional effect.)
5. Cut out the pocket. Then cut out the pocket flap. Glue a small stripe of the pocket flap to the back of the pocket, up to the fold line (I hope you can see the fold line in the picture). Fold the flap.
6. Sew on the button (through both layers, so the pocket stays closed). Glue the pocket onto the shirt.
7. Glue the bottom part of the tie onto the shirt.
Have fun! And please let me know if something is unclear.

PS: 'Proficiat' means 'Congratulations' in Flamish/Dutch.
(I used a commercial sticker.)

PPS: feel free to use the pattern any way you like. Commercial use is fine with me.
