How to Make a Father’s Day Shirt Card
These shirt cards are so simple to put together that we ended up making two, one for dad and one for granddad.
As you can see, one template includes a tie, and the other one includes a bow. We decided to mix and match them by printing each one on a different colored paper.
Let your kids pick their favorite printer-friendly paper to make their cards, maybe they found the perfect pattern to make a Hawaiian shirt?
Below, you will find the materials and instructions we followed to make these shirt cards. And if you prefer to learn by watching, there is also a video tutorial that will come handy.
To make this shirt card, you can download our printable template at the end of this tutorial. It makes this activity easier, and it’s a great guide to make this craft with young kids!
The first thing you will need is paper. We chose colored paper, but you can pick your favorite, whether it is patterned, white, or scrap paper.
You will also use scissors, glue, and markers or crayons to decorate your card.
- Start by printing the template on your favorite paper.
As I told you above, we made 2 cards and printed each template on a different color.
You can also print on white paper and let your kids color their cards, or alternatively, you can print the templates on cardstock and use them as stencils. There are so many options!
- Cut out the templates along the borders of each item.
- Take the shirt piece and fold it in half along the line.
- Cut the slits along the dotted lines to make the collar.
- Glue the bow or the tie in the middle, right above the buttons.
- Fold the 2 cut edges towards the center and glue them down to make the collar.
- Glue the pocket on one side of the shirt.
- Decorate your shirt card as you want with markers, crayons, or coloring pencils.
