Neckties to go with the shirts!

OWH came through today with a new necktie tutorial. It's the perfect companion to the shirt tutorial from last year around Father's Day.

I put the two together and -voila- five more Father's Day cards for OWH. :) Oh, and one "Praying for you" because the papers reminded me of that sentiment.


A close-up of one card.

A few sizing tips to share. I made the shirt with paper from a mat stack (4.5" by 6.5"). The best size for the tie paper was then 2" square. You can see some of my cards have larger ties. Those were 2.5" square. I think I prefer the proportion of the smaller ties, even if they're a bit harder to fold. I also found it was easier to put some ATG tape down the middle of the tie as I went to keep things together.

Have fun making your ties!!!
