  1. 1

    Measure and mark the four pieces of your folder. You will need one piece (A) 9 by 12 inches, one piece (B) 9 by 18 inches and two pieces (C) 8 by 30 inches.

  2. 2

    Cut your pieces along the marked lines.

  3. 3

    Layout your pieces. Place the A piece with its 9-inch long side running horizontally. Place the B piece below A with the same length sides spaced ¼ inch apart. Place each C piece on each side, keeping the ¼ inch spacing.

  5. 5

    Flip the folder over and attach identical strips of duct tape along the same edges, matching the length of the tape. Connect the tape strips in the ¼-inch gaps.

  6. 6

    Fold a shirt by laying it face down with the neckline on A. Fold over your C pieces one at a time, and then fold B. Flip over the folded shirt up to show the front.

Tips and warnings

  • Trim approximately 1 inch off of the side of one of the C pieces to make it easy to story the T-shirt folder. Fold over the trimmed C piece first and then the standard size C piece.
