Tutorial | How to fold a Paper Shirt

Today, I am sharing a tutorial on how to fold a paper shirt.

These are great for masculine cards but can also be added to your scrapbook page.

Below I have created 2 masculine birthday cards by adding the paper shirt to a card.

This paper folded shirt would also work as a great Father’s Day Card.

I used complimentary card stock to the card base and a sentiment.

The Sangria Background and Texture (B&T) paper was cut at a larger size than the Lagoon striped shirt to create different size shirts.

The instructions…

Here are the instructions I use to cut the Sangria shirt.

  • Cut a piece of Background and Texture (B&T) paper to 5″ x 7″
  • Fold in half length ways
  • Fold each edge into the centre fold
  • Using one end, fold the flaps down to create the sleeves
  • Turn the paper over and fold 7/8″ over to create a collar
  • Turn back over and fold in half and glue down under the collar
  • Cut a 1/8″ of co-ordinating card stock to create the stripes for the sleeves and the button up
  • Embellish with coloured dots to create the buttons


Here are some more paper shirts I have created.

If you want a smaller or larger paper shirt, adjust the B&T paper size and make sure that your paper is not a square.

The possibilities are endless with Close To My Heart B&T paper range.
