Happy Father's Day!

I've been loving the origami t-shirt cards I've seen this year.  I was then inspired by Teally from Two Peas as she posted on her blog the two Father's Day cards she made with Echo Park's This and That paper.  Well, I thought I had that, but found my pack of Note to Self instead and got started.

I looked up the how-to for making the t-shirt, and used the directions here: I tried it first on a 8 1/2" x 11" sized paper, and found the shirt looking a little stubby for my liking, so I used a 12"x12" paper, and cut it down to 12"x7.5". This left a card that was (at it's widest points) 5 5/8"x 5 1/4". So plan accordingly if you're trying for a specific envelope size. :)

I added a tie made from washi tape and a "No 1" sticker from the EP paper pack.

And for the inside, I added some plain paper to line it and some more EP stickers.

Materials: Echo Park Note to Self paper & sticker sheets, washi tape, plain cardstock
