Like to know how to make one yourself? It’s super easy and will only take minutes to make! I’ve got a photo tutorial to share with you today. I’m so glad you popped by.
I’ve used the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper in the Botanical Gardens suite from the 2016 Occasions Catalogue. I’ve also used the framelits called Botanical Builder Framelits to make the co-ordinating flower. You can even purchase these items in a bundle. Doesn’t the shirt look dapper????
Just to make the card making experience that little more fun – you can actually stamp directly onto this sheet of Designer Series Paper with the co-ordinating Stamp set called Botanical Blooms. Can you spot the leaves I’ve stamped??
I just love how Stampin’ Up! is matchy matchy. Everything co-ordinates… and that my friend is what sets Stampin’ Up! apart.
How did I make it? Read on…
Botanical Gardens Tropical Shirt – Photo Tutorial
- Take a full sheet of 12 x 12 inch Designer Series Paper. Cut in half.
- Trim 5 cm’s off the bottom. The Designer Series Paper now measures 15.3cms x 25.5cms
- Fold the paper length ways in half and crease.
- Fold in the edges to the centre crease and again firmly crease with your bone-folder.
- Once both edges are folded in your project will look like this.
- *Turn over the project and fold down a section approximately 2cms from the top. Crease.
- Turn back over your project again (so the opening is at front) and the 2cm fold is facing the table.
- Pull the top corners towards each other, so the corners just meet. This will form the shape of a collar. Crease so they stay in place.
- Measure 11cms from the bottom of the project and turn out the edges to create flaps as shown below.
- It’s important the ‘flaps’ mirror each other. This will create the shoulders and sleeves.
- Slip in from the bottom a piece of 7.5cm by 10cm Whisper White card stock. This insert will be the place you can pop a sentiment and write your message. Adhere the insert to the card.
- Fold up the bottom of the project and tuck it under the collar of the shirt.
- Make the fold firm by using your bone-folder to create a crease.
- Add some buttons to the front of the shirt and perhaps a flower as well.
Thats it!! Easy right?
