Turn a white envelope into a snappy shirt and tie for Dad.

Fill it with a card, small gift, or sweet treat.

You will need:

  • Greeting card envelope
  • Scrapbook paper for necktie
  • Scissors
  • Pen or pencil for measurement marks
  • Glue stick
  • Ruler
  • Card or gift to fill your gift holder


1. Seal the flap of the envelope and cut 1/4″ off one side of it.

2. To make the collar, cut a 1 1/2″ slit down the center on the front side of the envelope.

3. Fold down the collar, starting the fold 1/4″ from the top corner.

4. To make the tie, fold a 2″ X 5 1/2” piece of scrapbook paper in half lengthwise. Cut off the bottom corner at an angle to make the bottom of the tie. Then cut out a long triangle along the side.

 5. Open folded tie and glue it under the collar.

6. Glue down the collar.
