Now that we are third of the way through Ramadan, we are starting to think of Eid Al Fitr, the holiday at the end of the month.
Today’s Ramadan craft of this Eid card is so easy to make that it can be easily replicated to give out to several friends and family. My daughter took only a few minutes making it.
Once they receive the card, make sure they know that the moon and star bookmarks can be taken out to be used to hold their place in their favorite book or Quran.
The star and crescent was used in various historical contexts but most well known today as a symbol of the former Ottoman Empire and, by popular extension, the Islamic world. The crescent moon and star are used in 21 country flags.
- Beige card stock
- Wood moon & star cut outs
- Printed card stock
- Double sided tape
- Solid blue card stock
My daughter started by cutting two perpendicular slits in the bottom of the card, each about 2 inches across and one inch away from each other. She made these on the left side of the card so that it opens the Arabic direction. You can put your slits on the right side of the card if you want to open the card in the other direction.
She then cut two pieces of long stripes from the printed card stock, about one inch across and about one inch shorter than the full length of the card.
My daughter glued the wood cut outs to the top of the stripes of paper and set them aside to fully dry.
While the bookmarks were drying, my daughter grabbed the blue card stock and wrote Eid Mubarak on it.
Once the bookmarks were fully dry, she slipped both into the slits at the bottom of her card.
The final step is to add double sided tape between the slits so that the Eid Mubarak can be attached.
Now the Eid bookmark card is ready to be given out. Please stop by and enjoy these other moon and star projects we have made in the past
