Father’s Day Cards – card with origami-shirt

The idea of ​​shirt seemed to me interesting and not too difficult, especially because I know how to do origami shirt. I learned to do them for a long time, even when a student exchange in the US – then gave me a dollar made in shirt.This folded dollar is I still – I was laid out and with it probably a thousand times.

Here is the compiled Shirt:

Quite realistic, is not it? On the Internet you will find plenty of instructions to help you add up a shirt in 3 minutes! Here is my version of these instructions, adapted to the size of paper 15 x 15 cm (with a single sheet can be done two shirts). Bend piece from two sides towards the center fold line swipe colonies in the region of 5-7 mm from the upper edge, turn the sheet and bend the top corners at the middle, with the other side of 4 cm to bend the middle, then fold the lower portion (up collar). Lay the foundation shirts and fold the inner edges forming a sleeve, and then fold the shirt. The shirt will serve as the centerpiece of my cards. Actually I made these shirts and two ties complement them with tape.

Required Materials:

  • Letter fine scrap paper 15×15 cm for shirts;
  • Letter blue and white cardboard;
  • Houndstooth folder for stamping ;
  • Bradsy Smirk for Him ;
  • Feed Smirk Best Dad Ever ;
  • Double-sided tape.

Size cards – 10.5 x 14.5 cm (half an A4 sheet). For a card I cut the white lining Size 10.1 x 14.3 cm and a blue square (the size of 9.8 x 9.8 cm), and another strip of scrap paper size of 9.8 x 5 cm. Blue square I squeezed through the machine for embossing that there was a certain texture. But if the machine is not present, then you can do without it. Tied ribbon.
Knot the ribbon I decorated the icon with a funny image. I also graced the back of a postcard and glue the white paper in the middle, so that you can write on it greetings. Here is a get the original “Father’s Day card”!

Father’s day gifts: Military Diorama (Tutorial)

For the basis of our awesome fathers day gift we took a set of figurines of soldiers, and the rest is DIY. In the work used all that came to hand. It is the substrate for the laminate, picture frame, foil from a tube of mustard, a failed gypsum fill, and something else.

Under the cut are some photos of the intermediate stages and the result itself.

PS Criticism, advice, questions are welcome.

Actually the very basis for future dioramas. The wall material is the laminate substrate.

There already are lined walls, the plaster is applied and scattered debris. To «land» was not as flat, crumbled plaster. And secure it with the white glue (liquid PVA). For the base color used Tamiya paints. It also plays the role of a primer. The walls are already painted in their colors, but without the effects. Self-made barrel appears in the frame)))

Slightly aged wall, dented and painted barrel, added dust.

Then the final photos of our awesome fathers day gift from different angles.
