Quick Father’s Day Idea

First, draw a tie to use as your pattern.
 Trace it on your choice of paper!
I used three different scrapbook papers that I had.
 Then cut it out! Easy-Peasy, right??
 Next, take a regular envelope (small size) and seal it!
 Take a pair of scissors and cut the very end of it off. (I took about 1/4 of an inch)
 Find the center and make a 1 inch slit in it.
 Fold down the two pieces to make it look like a shirt collar.
 Make a cute note to stick on a candy bar and tape it on
 Finally, just glue the tie underneath the “collar”!
(I also glued the “collar” down too)
 Don’t forget to slip the candy bar and note in the top!
If you like ours,

    We’re celebrating fathers day on every third sunday of June to honor the hardworking fathers around the world. That’s why father’s day breakfast is one of the best to offer on our father. A special meal treat to the father comes from their wife can relieve all the the pain in terms of emotional that fathers undergo will easyly wiped out.

    You may check out this great video on YouTube for making a steak & eggs breakfast for your father. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XGoi9pMjzoA hope you’ll enjoy it.

    I am having a problem printing out the tie template. It turns out HUGE. Can you tell me what I’m doing wrong because there’s no way this tie will fit on my envelope? This is adorable. Thanks so much!

    I printed out the tie pattern and note that you made. It came out way too big. Is there a way to make it smaller?

    • Holly {Bits Of Everything} 06/12/2013 at 2:32 pm #

      When you push print and a box of options come up, you should be able to choose to scale the image down to the size you need. You could also look for an option to ‘fit to page’. Hope this helps.

  20. Jana 06/03/2014 at 2:59 pm #

    I know this is a silly question but did you use a regular size candy bar or king size? I chose the “fit to page” option on my printer but it still seems larger than a regular size so I wanted to check before I re-sized it!

  21. Caro 06/14/2014 at 8:51 am #

    I love this idea and used it for my little girl! Thank you!
    You will find here the way to come from me to you!!!

    It’s important to note that luxury cars like Bentley are expensive and require a considerable budget to purchase and maintain. Before making a purchase, it’s advisable to consider the cost of ownership, including maintenance, fuel, and insurance costs, and ensure that it’s within the buyer’s budget. It’s also recommended to buy from authorized dealers to avoid purchasing counterfeit or damaged cars.

    […] Tie Cards Here’s another spin on the traditional gift of a tie — a tie card! This is also a great gift for a dad with a sweet tooth because there’s a secret prize inside. First you’ll need to cut out a tie shape from some cool, patterned scrapbook paper. Next, seal a regular sized envelope and cut off one end. Cut a slit about one inch into the open end and fold it down to create a “collar,” so to speak. Glue on your tie and then slip in a Hershey’s chocolate bar — there’s the secret prize! You can find full instructions for this Father’s Day craft at Bits of Everything. […]
