Top Tip Tuesday Monochromatic Challenge & Origami Shirt Tutorial

Hello and welcome here!  I hope you had a great weekend and are enjoying some nice weather where you live. Today the Challenge over at Top Tip Tuesday is Monochromatic, I also have an Origami Shirt Tutorial there for you to make the super cute shirts you see on my cards, you can find that HERE!!

Challenge - Monochromatic
Tutorial - Origami Shirt

Card Size: approx. 6.75" x 7"
How fun is that!?!  An origami shirt easel card.  I had a lot of fun with making it.  Once you do 1 it's easy to catch on and comes together quickly.  It also was a lot of fun trying to decide how to embellish the shirt.

I love this shirt card! I am going to check out your tutorial and try one for my husband. Thank you.

PS) How did you turn this into an easel card? I am checking out your gorgeous creations but I can't figure out how to place the shirt onto the easel so it will stand up and close.

Hi Lenoria, I will try to explain it in words. Cut and fold your card base to measure 4.25" x 4.25". Now score what would normally be the card front in half - at 2 1/8" - so that the score line is parallel to the fold of the card. Now fold it (mountain fold) and you will adhere the bottom of the shirt to the section that is the edge of the card front (not the section closest to the fold.) I hope that helps, if not you can email me and I can take a quick photo of what I mean. dltreble@hotmail.com
