Eid Treat Mini Bags {Tutorial}

Eid treat bag

Due to COVID19, I made only a few Eid treat bags for our neighborhood kids, instead of the hundreds I used to volunteer to make for our community holiday party.

I decided to spend a little time creating them and cut out each letter, then back it with tissue paper, to make it look like stained glass.

I added a little note inside the treat bags for the moms that they could put a tea light into the bag, once all the treats were gone, and use it as a decorative light. LED lights are best inside a paper bag, but any type of light or flame should never be left unattended around children.

My eldest daughter helped me cut out the letters and rated this craft as easy, once she got the hang of cutting.

Supplies

  • Treat bag
  • Letter stickers
  • Xacto
  • Tape
  • Tissue paper
  • Newspaper or mini cutting board

To start, my daughter took the letter D and adding pencil markings to the top and bottom to remind herself not to cut through. If she did not add these markings, then the middle of the D would fall out.

Then my daughter added a few layers of newspaper inside the bag, laid it flat and cut out the letters.

Now my daughter needed to figure out what size tissue paper to cut out to cover up all the letters. Once the tissue paper was cut down, she used tape to secure it in place, inside the bag.

Now our Eid treat bag was done and is ready to be filled with candy or non-candy treats. This photo also helps explain better how the middle of the D stays attached to the bag.

We played around with the placement of the letters, having some bags read from side to side, while others went from top to bottom.
