Man’s Shirt Thank You Card

My mom buys nearly all of my kid’s clothes. She loves going to Osh Kosh, Heart Strings and Carter’s. We even have a onesie with “If they could only stay little until their Carter’s wear out.” Remember that old ad jingle? They are such cute clothes! We just got a huge bag full of jammies, jeans, pants, shirts, jackets, socks-AWESOME! So this ‘card’ is a thank you for all of it.

This was pretty easy to make, Martha Stewart has instructions but the diagrams were really small on my iPhone and clicking didn’t enlarge them. So I found a site with Hawaiian Origami shirt instructions.

This is how the shirt looks without the tag in the way. Isn’t it cute? Below is how the inside looks. I used scraps of the same paper, reverse side, and wrote a note from 2 year old Spencer to his nana. Jameson also wrote a note on another little scrap. They tuck in quite nicely and I’m pretty sure they won’t fall out.

Enjoy, Rebecca

This is such a great idea. I think it would make a great masculine card as well. And as always, you have executed it perfectly.
