Before Ramadan started, I went on a craft frenzy getting my house ready and decorated for Ramadan. As the days of Ramadan passed, my daughter missed doing crafts. So we decided to make some Eid cards! The great thing about making your own cards is that you can go crazy with your imagination!
I also purchased this beautiful Eid Mubarak stamp from Eastern Toybox. What I love about their products is that they sell Fair Trade, Eco Friendly, and Hand Made products! The stamps come in a variety of styles, but I chose the English one.
Now on to the supplies:
- A2 (4.25×5.5 in.) size cards
- Template printed from Sweet Fajr
- Stamp pad
- Glue stick
- Stickers, papers, markers, whatever your heart desires!
Once folded, decorate as you please. I found a pack of moon and star stickers at Jo-Ann I decided to use. Then glue the template to your card. Once it’s glued, it would take better shape. Make sure you do one side at a time to ensure it sticks properly. Don’t forget your message!
For the front, I reused some pretty gift wrapping paper I received (yeahy for recycling!!). I found a pack of precut tags at Jo-Ann I used to for the stamp. You can design the front however you want. My cards all had different styles. This is the part where you can use your creativity!
My daughter and I loved making these cards. She also had a great time learning about how letters are mailed! With e-mails and texts, we sometimes forget about sending out something as personal as a greeting card. It’s important to teach our kids about these age old traditions so they can carry it on as well!!
