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”!

Required Materials:
  • Coloured or origami paper
  • Double sided tape
  • Wooden brochette skewers
  • Glue

1. Cut paper making squares of 10 cm.
2. Fold squares diagonally.
3. Fold as shown in step 3 and 4 to make a square again.
4. Follow step 5 and 6 to make a figure as shown in the picture.

10. Stick flower to a wooden brochette skewer and you’re done!

For leafs:
I used 2 mm wide strips, 2 shades of green for each leaf (120gsm combined with 80gsm). You will need very long paper strips, 40cm up to 80 cm, so glue 2-3 strips together before you start to weave them around the pins.
This quilling technique is called “husking”. Insert your first pin into the cork board and secure the paper strips by making a tiny loop. Insert the next pin and bring the paper strips around it, making sure to always add glue at the base of your first pin every time you come back to that point. Repeat the process until the desired grass leaf length is achieved.

DIY Simple Way to Create a Secret Box

Create a Secret Box 1

You can use this box with a secret, made ​​with their own hands, to hold different desired detail, and also as a gift or packaging for a gift.

For the manufacture of boxes with a secret you will need six sheets of paper, and preferably more dense. One sheet for the outer part of the box, the contrast for the cover sheet, and 4 for internal boxes. Cut as follows (all dimensions in inches – 1 inch is equal to 2.54 cm)

  • The outer part of the box: 6 x 11;
  • Cover the box: 8.5 x 8.5;
  • 4 inner box: 8 x 8;

A method of making a box with a secret

We start production of boxes with 4 indoor boxes. They are all made by the same scheme. See more photos step by step manufacturing.

1. Draw on the reverse side of our paper square two lines from the corners to the corners.

Now we turn to the angle of intersection of the center lines on all four sides (like an envelope), and then unfold.

Next, divide the distance between the center and folded in half and then fold down the line on all four sides – a skirting of our boxes.

For clarity, the figure everything is lined marker, but do not necessarily.

Then cut out four shaded triangle and get the following:

Next, an incision on the arrows painted.

Now we assemble our box. All makes no glue, just need to press tight corners and bends (although, if you wish, you can use the glue).

So, does all 4 inner box and the lid. The cover of the box, however, as the box itself, you can decorate to your taste and desire.

Then we proceed to the assembly of our boxes with a secret.

Take a sheet of paper, the size of 15.25 x 287sm, and bend in the middle, then divide the two halves in half again and again go too. Thus, we have 4 rectangles, each of which will be located on the same box. They have our box as shown, and glue.

Once the glue is dry just pergibaem sheet with boxes on folds.

Our box with secret ready!

Here are some options boxes with secret.

How to make a paper crane


Crane – a symbol of wish fulfillment. Cranes can be, for example, decorate a corner in my room:

Make a curtain of cranes lib mobile.

Well, how to resist and not to get to work (desire in all of us and is always there – in store))) Prepare a sheet of paper with color – eg the white color and the sides – so you will be easier to navigate while working.
We proceed to the manufacture of the crane.
1. Expand the list. Svernite sheet diagonally colored side out. Then, the resulting triangle folds in half and then fold the triangle in half, aligning the fold line.
Expand the list and place the colored side to the table. Squeeze together the two corners of one diagonal Fold them into the bottom corner, addressed to you Fold the second part as well, lowering the upper corner of the sheet. Here’s what happened. Inside can be seen rolling in “side” squares. Upper square lift.
7. Install the outer edge of the sheet already tucked into the folds of the surface right, combining a central fold line to the edge of the napkin.
Also do and left. 8. Here’s what you should have. 9. Turn the folded sheet, repeat the last two steps with the other half of the sheet 10. Right angle remained at the center of the sheet, turned his sharp outer corners. The folded sheet must lie an acute angle to you. Hold the center of the blank hand, wrap the inner corner towards the first right. urting the fold line. The result was the tail of a crane. The blank will take the following form: Similarly, make left corner lies within wrap outwardly. This neck.
Bend of the acute angle. Get your head crane. Front view of the head. Hurting the fold line. turns away from the workpiece two other angle – wings. denote folding lines for the wings. Expand the sides wings. Crane is ready!

DIY: Handmade frame from origami paper


For the manufacture of frames with a diameter of about 21 cm., We need five sheets of pale yellow and 5 sheets of green paper format A-4 for triangular modules. From a single sheet obtained 16 rectangles measuring 5 cm to 7 cm. So, for the yellow blanks necessary to wind the 80 modules for the green-70. We connect the modules to each other, rounding them up and slowly forming a circle. The fastening is not very tight! Clay did not use! The diameter of the resulting circle is equal to approximately 23 cm. Furthermore tightly connect the modules. The circle becomes smaller, about 21 cm. Likewise, we do green preform. It consists of 70 modules and will be less. Its initial diameter of 21 cm., And the final 19-cm.

Now, our framed need something like glass. We do it out of a dense book covers. The main thing that it was flat. Cut a circle with a diameter of 18 cm. It is better to make a blank paper and then cut around it, so as not to puncture was formed by the compass in the center.

Putting all three elements of the frame.

In the pale yellow blank, the internal circuit, as close as possible to the edge to put the PVA glue.

Glue the transparent circle. Smoothes everything to be exactly. PVA glue allows this, it is not directly grasped, and in which case, an error can be corrected. On top of the transparent film to apply the adhesive, so that it fell on the “glass”, and modules. Top glue green procurement. Presses more tightly to the glue grabbed. This is the front side of the frame. And wrong side. Further, the cardboard cut out a circle of diameter 19 cm. Cut curved scissors that looked spectacular. Apply glue along the contour of the frame from the inside, but only half (pictured ruler marked limits application of the adhesive). Glue. In the final frame should have a window. This picture will be inserted. The last step pedestal. I’m doing it here on such a scheme. Cut along the lines outlined. The dashed-line fold line. Bend like the picture. To stand is desirable to take a thick cardboard. I board not tight, so do double. Bend, apply the adhesive and glue.

Decorate the frame.

Practical advice: better to frame the stand to stick at the last moment, after the frame is already decorated with flowers. Otherwise, it will be inconvenient to stick the flowers, leaves, etc.

Frame made complete with packaging for chocolates. That’s a set turned.
