Father's Day "Shirt" Card

I saw this "origami" shirt made by Mary at Cardcrazy09 and had to make it. (smaller one).
Then I thought, what if it was larger like a card. I could make these all day long. It's so easy. It's folded exactly like the one she did only I used a larger sheet of paper, 8x12.

Open it up and the bottom half is perfect for a 4x5 mat of the same print. You may have to trim a small amount off the edges. Then place a 3 3/4 x 4 3/4 mat on top. The "Tie" is ribbon tied in a loose knot and I slipped the other end through the back. My husband made a Full- Windsor knot for me but I could never replicate it. The sunglasses are from the Paisley Cartridge and I rounded the edges. I think it was cut at 1 1/2" .
I made the "Hawaiian Shirt for the Beach Challenge. I was going to add a beach umbrella to the inside but ran out of time. Had to mail it.
