Sweet Jacket - Tutorial

Sweet? That's right... there's a chocolate bar in that suit! With Father's Day coming up, I wanted to make something related to fathers. This actually looks like one of the sports jacket my husband wears.

I'm hosting this week's 3D Tuesday for Paper Craft Planet and the challenge (3d118) is to make a paper craft project that reminds you of a special father. If you'd to play along, please join me at the 3D Tuesday Group to share your project for this special occasion.

Paper: Black, White, Patterned Paper
Acc:  Button, Adhesive, Candy Bar

Patterned Paper: Measure length of candy bar. For width, wrap all the way around the bar and add 1/4".
Black: Length and width of bar minus 1/8" of width.
White: "A": Length and width of bar minus 1/8" of width. "B": Same as "A" minus 1" to 2" of length. "C": Half the length of "B."

Trim bottom corner of "jacket."

Place both black and white "A" pieces in center of wrong side of jacket as shown; adhere to inside of "jacket."

Place candy bar over all three pieces.

Fold black piece over candy bar.

Fold "A" over candy bar. Trim where it meets top of black piece.

Adhere "jacket" fronts where it meets; add button.

Fold back both "lapels."

Shirt: Trim bottom corners of "B" with corner rounder punch.

Score and fold 3/8" of top edge of "C."

Turn "C" over; fold both top corners towards center at an angle until corners meet -- approximately 1/4" - 1/2" below top edge.

Trim along red curved line.

Apply adhesive under "collar" and adhere to center back of "B."

Cut tie from scraps; adhere under the "collar."

Add sentiment to "shirt" and insert into "jacket."

That's it!  Lots of steps, but pretty easy.

Thanks for visiting!
