Even though Fathers Day isn’t celebrated in Australia until September, I couldn’t resist making this Fathers Day craft project. The business shirt gift bag would be fun to make for Fathers Day, a graduation gift, or a male birthday. It can be hard to come up with handmade gifts for men. Even if you purchase a gift, you can still give it the handmade touch by decorating a plain gift bag.
- plain gift bag
- two sheets of double sided scrap booking paper
- two small buttons
- plain shipping tag
- dymo embosser label maker
- mini peg (clothespin)
- washi tape
- double sided tape
Cut a piece of scrap booking paper the same size as the gift bag. Cut a slit that is 1 1/2 inches in length in the middle of the top edge of the paper. Fold the paper down to create a shirt collar.
Using some scrap paper, cut a template for the tie. Trace the tie template onto scrap booking paper and cut out.
Position the tie on the “shirt”. Stitch around the tie using black thread in your sewing machine.
Stitch a button on the corners of the collar to hold the points down.
Adhere the shirt and tie to the front of the gift bag with double sided tape.
Add a message to the shipping tag with label maker. Tie some striped ribbon around the tag. Cover the front of the peg with washi tape and use to attach the tag to the gift bag.
This fathers day craft was inspired by Fathers Day envelope from Bits of Everything.
