Today’s tutorial is for a quad-fold card that says Eid Mubarak, which means Blessed Eid in Arabic. This greeting is said to Muslims at the of Ramadan when they are celebrating Eid Al Fitr.
I love paper cutting and want to make sure my daughters are also comfortable using an xacto knife. If your child is supervised and taught to respect a knife, they can be taught at an early age to be careful with creating cutting crafts.
I have to admit I helped with the windows of the mosque, but everything else my teenager did on her own. She rated it as medium since it took longer then our usual Eid cards because she had to be so careful.
My daughter drew a slanted line across her paper lightly with a pencil.
She then folded the paper into four accordion folds, 3 inches wide.
She drew out a design with a mosque in the top space, a palm tree in the second space, a sand dune in the three space and a camel in the fourth space.
She then carefully took the xacto and cut out her drawing to create negative space.
She then cut off a little from the bottom of the card and stamped Eid Mubarak with letter stamps on the first fold.
That’s it, her card is done. She’ll write a personal greeting inside the other folds.
