Father's Day Gift Bag

Here's a cute way to give Dad his treats this Father's Day. This shirt gift bag is quick and easy enough to get the kiddos in on the action as well. Think what fun it would be to have an ugly tie contest (and Dad wouldn't be stuck wearing it!)

Father's Day Gift Bag Supplies:
Step 1. Cut paper 10" x 11 1/2"
 Step 2. With the kraft side facing up, the the short edge lined up across the top fence, score at 2".
Step 3. Turn the paper a quarter turn, counter-clockwise and score at 1/2", 2 1/2", 6", and 8". Go to the first large block (between 2 1/2" and 6"), score every 1/4" - just down to the horizontal score, to create the pinstripes for the front of the shirt.
 Step 4. Turn the paper over, so that the color is facing upwards. Score at 4 1/2" and 10"  
Step 5. Clip the tabs at the bottom.
 Step 6. Sand the pin-stripes.

Step 7. Fold along the scores to assemble the bag.

Step 8. Pinch the top of the bag together, and cut an inch in on each side.

Step 9. Fold the tabs in to form the collar.

Step 10. Hand cut a tie. Adhere to the bag. Secure the collar using double sided tape.


Now the fun will just be thinking what goodies to put in your bag!
