A quick tutorial to fold Origami Shirts – suitable for Father’s Day or Birthday greeting or just for fun!. This pattern is based on the well-known Origami Money Shirt. Do you remember? We made a whole set of them a while ago from Monopoly Money. However, this version is made from plain printer paper, with some shirt details and fold guide-lines added.
How to Make Origami Shirts
Are you Ready? Let’s Go! Firstly, click on the link to the right, and print the template onto a sheet of paper. Trim around the edges (along the cut-line.)
Secondly, fold the paper. Follow the fold lines on the printout. The diagrams below are a helpful step-by-step guide.
Note – The mountain folds are indicated with light coloured dotted lines, and the valley folds are darker.
Finally your origami shirt is ready! Now you have a few options:
1. Write a message on the back (or front) of the shirt.
2. Use the origami shirt as a gift voucher holder – Cleverly insert a gift card or voucher between the folds of the shirt (see below).
3. Make a whole lot more and use them as table or room decorations. Try stringing them together to make masculine bunting.
Great for Father’s day, men’s birthdays, congratulations or invitations.
Hint – Print the shirt out on coloured or patterned paper for interesting options. Just as long as it will go through your printer. Try lined and graph paper for interesting shirt print pattern options!
