Today we officially have embarked into the month of June! June means a lot of things to me – half way through the year, summer vacation, and both Father’s day and my father’s birthday. So as we were thinking on projects for this month, I naturally started thinking about “man” cards. For most of us, manly cards are a struggle. There are so many options out there for girly things between ribbons, rhinestones, flowers and swirls; when it comes to the guys on the other hand I am often at a loss. Our team decided to face this challenge head on and bring you a series of masculine cards that hopefully will help you always have the card you need for the men in your life. We hope you enjoy this card series!
I am kicking off this series with a fun origami tie card. I don’t think we often consider origami in conjunction with the Inspiration, but the two actually make a great pair! I love origami because it can give some “bulk” to an object that would otherwise be boring and flat. This card wouldn’t be nearly as cute with a flat diecut tie! However what I DON’T like about origami is that I can never get my folds perfect. I never get it folded perfectly in half, my folds never line up the way I want them to etc. However by making myself a template in the Inspiration Studio I now have a pattern for this tie that guarantees I’ll get a perfect and consistent tie every time. This is also a wonderful way to get your kids involved in the card making. Kids can easily fold on the lines and make up a card for their dad – they will feel so proud and dad will love it! I hope you enjoy this card and if you love this origami template LEAVE A COMMENT AND TELL ME SO and you just might see more templates in the future!
Here is the recipe (including folding instructions) and cutting file for this card!
