If you think what card to present to a man, this post is for you. In this master class let’s learn to make such an original postcard-jacket with own hands. To create a postcard in the form of a jacket, we will need:


  • Pencil
  • White/black pencil or pen
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Lighter or matches


  • Sheet of coloured two-sided paper of A4 format
  • Sheet of paper A4 to create a shirt

1. To begin, let’s start to create a jacket. For this we take a sheet of bilateral colored paper, turn it in a horizontal position and cut so that the height of our future postcard was 18 centimeters.

2. Take the ruler and measure on one side of the postcard 7.5 cm, and on the other – 8.5 cm. Bend the edge of the jacket according to the markup.

3. Bend the paper on top of the postcard, as shown in the picture, so we have turned lapels

To ensure, that the cuts are not will be shaggy, take a lighter or match and conduct along the cuts
