Whether you already make your own cards or just a beginner like me, this personalized lab coat card is doable. It took me two tries to get it right since all I had a photo of it but, I have all the instructions for you with detailed measurements in case you would like to try to make one as well.
Step 1: Fold the A4 sized white paper from both sides in a way that the width is a total of 5" and the two front closures overlap by 1" as shown in the photo #1.
Step 2: Cut the paper vertically to 6". You can make it longer if you are using a large envelope.
Step 5: Fold the corner so that the corner will meet on the pencil marks at the top and the bottom. This will be the collar of the lab coat.
Step 6: Apply the same folding technique on the other side. Your card should look like the photo #6.
Step 8: Draw a horizontal line from the left corner of the collar to the right as shown in dotted lines below.
Step 10: Cut the small triangle that is left on the right of the dotted line you draw in step #9.
Step 11: Embellish your card by adding a pocket, putting the button, name tag and the stethoscope.
Step 12: Fill the inside of the card with your warmest wishes and mail/give it to that special person...
I have used materials and papers I already had home. I even re-purposed a paint chip for the red pen and a thick brand tag from a jean for the gray paper for the stethoscope. The black paper is cut from a folder I also had at home.
Tip: You can use this tutorial to make a card for anyone that wears uniform at work: scientists, nurses, chefs, or doctors.
I have already filled my card and will mail it on Monday. I cannot wait to have it delivered to my sister. Hope you enjoyed this DIY. Please let me know if you decide to make it or have any questions.
