Why Pineapple Hill?

The pineapple has been a symbol of hospitality since the days of the early American colonies. According to legend, the symbol began with the sea captains of New England who would spear a pineapple on a fence post outside their home to let the community know of their safe return home and to invite friends to visit and share their hospitality.

Likewise, we hope Pineapple Hill Designs boutique will make you feel “Welcome”! We know how important it is to find something special for that certain someone or just the right accessory to complete a room. We believe everyday is a day to celebrate, and we have just the thing to help you create something special out of the ordinary.

Devoted to Dad - Day 1

Happy June! Father's Day is just around the corner and to celebrate Dad's we are hosting 21 Days Devoted to Dad Tune in each day for gifts, recipes, crafts and giveaways .... Devoted to Dad - Day 1
Folded Shirt Card

Courtesy of Martha Stewart Living June 2004

A shirt and tie are a traditional gift for Dad -- a card to match is something new. Use legal-size (8 1/2-by-14-inch) decorative paper.
  1. Place paper facedown. Fold in half vertically; unfold. Line up left edge with centerline fold, and crease; repeat with right edge. Unfold, and lay flat.
  2. Fold top-left corner in to line up with outermost crease, forming a triangle; repeat on top-right corner. Using index fingers and thumbs, pinch together outside points of each triangle so they meet, and crease.
  3. While still pinching triangles, fold down top edge (this will make sleeves).
  4. Turn paper upside down, and flip it over. Fold down top edge 3/4 inch.
  5. Flip paper over. Fold top left and right corners so tips meet at centerline.
  6. Tuck bottom edge under collar, and flatten by creasing. For the tie, cut out an 8-by-1/2-inch strip of decorative paper. Knot paper. Snip close to knot on one side; trim other to a point. Glue to shirt.

I used to build these little shirts at church with the dollar bill that my parents gave me for an offering and put it in the collection plate that way!! It's been so long since I've made one...I think I'll have a go at it again :)

Those are so cute - I love the colors of the samples!

I am so going to try making those.

I have a feeling they will turn out to look like a crumpled shirt you would find on the floor, but hey I'm gonna try.
