Origami Shirt
 by Heather Peplinski (heather@anonymousscrapper.com)The "dollar shirt" description included within the text below is excerpted from The OrigamiHandbook written by Rick Beech.Ingredients:" Ultra-White Cardstock, cut to make 4.25" x 5.5" card" Lilac Mist Cardstock, cut to 3 3/16" x 4 3/8"" Fun-Tastic Stripe B&T, cut to 4" x 8" (stripes parallel to 8" length)" White Vellum, cut to 1" x 3.5"" Contempo Blocks Stamp Set
" Playful Lower/Upper Case (Acrylic), Acrylic Block " Lilac Mist, Key Lime, Holiday Red Inks" (2) Silver Brads" Paper Piercer " Stamp SpongePreparing the Vellum:1. Using the Playful Acrylics, assemble the word 'Dad' on your acrylic block.2. Stamp in Holiday Red on the vertical/horizontal center of the vellum.3. Set aside to cure.Making the Shirt:1. All left/right (LH/RH) references in the following description are based on the paper beingoriented with long edge closest to you.2. With pattern face down, sponge Holiday red onto the RH edge as shown below (sponge a stripabout ½ inch wide) - this will become the collar.3. Continue by sponging Holiday red onto the top/bottom of the LH edge (sponge a strip about ½inch thick and about 3" wide along the top and bottom leftmost edges) - this will become thesleeve cuffs.4. Continuing with the pattern face down, score a line 1" in from each long side.5. Fold these edges into towards the center.6. Unfold Step 5 and turn the paper over (pattern is face up).7. At the right, fold a thin strip, about ¼ inch in width, revealing the sponged color for the collar.8. Turn the paper over and refold the long sides into the center.9. At the RH end, fold the sponged color strip behind, on a crease that runs along the edge, sothat you are doubling the paper over by the same amount again.10. Fold the RH corners inward to meet the horizontal center-line. The corners rest at a point ashort distance in from the RH edge, making creases which meet the outer edges at a fairly obtuseangle. This forms the collar.
11. At the LH end of the model, fold the inner flaps outward, as far as they will comfortably go,that is to the extreme lower and upper corners. The angle of the fold ins not critical, but youshould have a small triangle projecting above and below the model. These folds will form thesleeves.12. Unfold Step 11. Fold the long inner edges evenly outward (exposes the LH sponging done inStep 3), folding a very thin strip, from the open edge up to or slightly beyond the center of themodel. Do not worry if these two folds do not run level or meet, as theis section of the paper will be hidden away on the final model.13. Refold Step 11 to make the sleeve flaps.14. Rotate the paper 90deg, then fold the lower edge upwards, tucking it underneath the collar flaps. Flatten the model (scoring bone works nicely).Preparing the Card Base:1. Using the 3rd largest shape, random stamp Key Lime using 2nd Generation stamps. Keepstamping square to page for Steps 1-3.2. Using the 4th largest shape, random stamp Spring Iris using 2nd Generation stamps.3. Using the 5th largest shape (2nd smallest), random stamp Holiday Red using 3rd Generationstamps.Assembling the Card:1. Adhere shirt to center of Lilac Mist Cardstock piece.2. Position Vellum with 'Dad' stamp across shirt approximately 1/3 from the bottom.3. Pierce through Vellum and Lilac CS for right hand brad. Install brad.4. Square up Vellum; pierce through Vellum and Lilac CS for left hand brad. Install brad.5. Adhere shirt/Lilac CS assembly to front of card over RS.6. Voila! Happy Dad's Day!
