Father's Day Jacket Pocket Card
Create a jacket lapel complete with a place for -- what else? -- a pocket square. Choose card stock in a color to coordinate with the accessory.
- Pocket-Square Template
- 8 1/2-by-11-inch printer paper and white and colored card stock
- Craft knife
- Cutting mat
- Bone folder
- Double-sided tape
- White gel-ink pen
- Pocket square
Transfer template to colored stock: Print and cut out the template, and tape it onto the stock. Cut a 1/8-inch-wide slit for the pocket. Cut around the outline. Using bone folder and ruler, score along dotted line; remove template. Flip card stock over.
Fold down lapel; secure with double- sided tape. Draw "stitching" along lapel edges and on pocket with gel-ink pen. Write a message. Flip jacket over. Place double-sided tape along edges.
Flip over again, and tape the jacket to a piece of white card stock that has been folded in half widthwise.
Insert pocket square.
