Glad We're TIED Together!

Father's Day is coming up soon and I always like something cute to hold a candy bar and gift card.   I know a tie is kind of cliche', but I think this is cute enough and the sentiment is so fun that it overcomes the "boring Father's Day tie."

What do you think?  On Pinterest, I saw several shirt and tie ideas and I just tweaked it a little.

The shirt is made from a business size envelope.   I used liquid adhesive to seal the envelope, so it would be sure to stay sealed.

The start of the collar is a slit down the middle of the top layer.  

Finish the collar with two simple folds.

Use the tie template to cut out a tie and cut out the top of the tie again for a knot.  

Easy, right?

Download the tie template and sentiments HERE.

So glad you stopped by!
