Shirt and tie card

This cute shirt and tie card is so easy to make and perfect to gift to a loved one for Father’s Day, birthdays and many other special occasions!

Here’s what we need

  • Coloured card
  • Patterned paper
  • Skin tone paper
  • Buttons
  • Scissors
  • Glue

How to make our shirt and tie card

Take the piece of coloured card that you will be using for the shirt and fold it in half into a card. Next make a small cut (roughly 5 or 6cm) in the top of the card at the centre point.

Fold the two corners of your cut outwards to form the shape of the shirt’s collar like you can see above.

Cut out a strip of your skin coloured paper and glue it down on the inside of the card to fill the gap between the collar sides.

Cut out the shape of the tie from your patterned paper and then make a small cut in the top of the tie at the centre point.

Fold the corners behind the tie to make a V shape and then cut off any excess that’s sticking out.

Glue the tie down at the base of the collar then add a few buttons to the front of the shirt

Finish off by adding any extra details such as a pocket, a name tag or a special message and your shirt and tie card is ready to be gifted to a loved one!

DIY Desk tidy gift craft

My partner has had a busy few weeks so my son and i thought we would make him a present. This DIY desk tidy is perfect for him to display at the office or on his computer table at home. My son was really chuffed with the result and so was i. What’s great too is that is that this diy desk tidy gift craft cost barely anything to make and was a really fun project for me and my son to sit and make together.

You will need

  • Tp rolls
  • Cardboard
  • Paintbrush and paint
  • A peg
  • Glue gun
  • Scissors
  • A photo
  • Items to decorate, we used stick on letters and other stickers that we had lying about

Take your piece of cardboard (we used a bit of old box) and cut it in to a rectangle to make the base. Now cut your TP rolls so that they are each a different length.

Paint your Tp rolls, Peg and carboard base in your chosen colours and put them aside to dry.

Once dry, use your glue gun to stick your cardboard tubes and peg in place on your base.

Finish decorating your desk tidy by adding some stickers and any additional decoration pieces. Now all that is left to do is add your photo to the peg holder and either gift or display your cool new craft!
