My husband Charlie wears a lot of Hawaiian shirts and has one for "evening wear" "lunch" "yard work" all occasions really!  Here's his closet, shhh don't tell I posted this!!  

1.    Select 2 pieces of the Hawaiian paper, cut 1 to 4 ½ x 6 and the other 6 x 6. Overlap the paper by ½” so you have a piece finished at 6 x 10

2.    Fold in the sides so they meet in the middle, your piece is now 3 x 10” (long and skinny)

3.    Fold the top of this piece to the back at about ¾” (this will be the collar)

4.    Now bring the back to the front so you can see the collar; I started about 1 ¾” down from the top of the collar

5.    Create a space for your greeting (it’s not that big!) by folding back the lower sides (at the bottom) see photo, I started about 4 ¼” from the bottom

6.    Now fold the bottom up and tuck it into the collar.

7.    Unfold and insert a greeting on the Vanilla piece cut 2 ½ x 4

8.    Fold the shirt closed.

9.    Add some flowers for buttons.  Decorate your vanilla envelope with matching design paper (cut 5 ½ x 2), trimmed to the envelope
