A new challenge at ACLP!

 Happy Tuesday everyone! It's time for a new challenge over at A Crafty Little Place: "One For The Boys!" This week we want to see some guy cards in celebration of all the males in our lives, and Father's Day in the U.S. is on Sunday. Yes! This Sunday! Have you purchased anything yet for him? ;)
We had a chance to use the awesome Little Boy Blue papers from My Mind's Eye:

and Spellbinder Shapeabilities

I decided to do a fold that I learned when I was little to create a dress shirt for the focal point. This is going to my FIL who is a principal at a middle school and is quite the savvy dresser. ;)

This is a great fold for any occasion, depending on the papers you use.
You'll need:
any sized paper in a rectangular shape (a square makes it too wide)
bone folder for clean lines
glue dots to hold the fold down

Here is a {rough} tutorial that I made for you:

Voila! A man's shirt, ready to grace a card, luau invitation, or a guy thank you. ;)
You can link your work up HERE on the ACLP blog, as well as see all the awesome manly samples by the Design Team.
I am headed out later today to buy our summer pool pass and then to our DD's soccer playoffs (DH coaches and DS is the assistant coach) - exciting!!. Have a wonderful day everyone!♥

It's a perfect gift to give to our dad this coming father's day! Thanks for sharing the tutorial. I would probably make some for my dad and for my hubby.
