~ DAD you're the best - quilled tie

 ~ hello

after nearly forgetting mother's day 
I wasn't going to let the same thing happen for father's day

so here is my rendition of an argyle sweater and dress shirt with a quilled tie
  I went through a couple of prototypes but the process was quite simple in the end

  • I took a white card base and glued argyle type paper on the front of it 
{I printed my sentiment on the argyle paper before gluing}
  • ran a score line down the middle of the glued card front
  • cut approximately 1.5 " (3.8 cm) down the score line from the top
  • folded the two cut edges down to form the collar
  • added a quilled tie and some buttons

~ enjoy your day
