Eid Dimensional Magnets {Tutorial}

Can you believe we are half way through our Ramadan crafts challenge?  Now that we are closer to Eid, I thought I would start preparing.

 

This year for our favor bags, I wanted to include Eid magnets.  They are so easy to make with Mod Podge Dimensional Magic and the business card holders we used a few days ago on the prayer rugs.  Make sure you leave plenty of time for them to cure.

 

I received the Mod Podge Dimensional Magic as my role as Plaid Ambassador.  Stop by A Crafty Arab on Facebook to enter our Ramadan contest to win free Mod Podge.

Business card holder
Mod Podge Dimensional Magic
Eid printables

I started by cutting out the images I wanted from the sheet and adding it to the business card.

I placed the magnets on a flat surface and generously added the Dimensional Magic.

The magnets must sit for at least 24 hours.  I touched one of them before they were dry and it left a little bump.

While I was waiting for the magnets to dry, I made the numbers in the same way for the Ramadan lantern countdown calendar.

Once the magnets are done, they will have a dome on them that gives them a 3D dimensional look.

2018 Ramadan Crafts 30 Day Challenge {Resource}

Tomorrow marks the start of our 8th annual 30 day Ramadan crafts challenge.

 

Ramadan is a holy month in the Islamic calendar when able Muslims around the world fast between sunrise to sunset. No food, no water, nothing can enter their body. In the most simplest of explanations for children to understand: it is to make them appreciate what they have and to donate to the less fortunate at the end of the month.

 

For our annual #CraftyRamadan challenge, we will once again be sharing 30 activities, tutorials and downloads that teach about Ramadan, Muslims, the Arab world, and the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region.

 

From the beginning, my 3 daughters and I have spent the holy month of Ramadan creating projects to talk about their connection to the 1.75 billion Muslims around the world.   I wanted to show them they were part of a larger Ummah, a word meaning community in Arabic,  أمة‎. Some posts may not teach anything but offer a fun toy or game to help children pass the time.

 

Our annual tradition started in 2011, and continued in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017.

 

As an teaching artist, I had the resources to teach them art in my studio, a subject they were heavily missing in their school system.  As a Muslim, I wanted to make sure they were always reading and learning, as asked of us in the Quran, or holy book. As an Arab mother, I wanted to spend time with them individually talking about my childhood memories of spending Ramadan with family, growing up in Libya.

 

This year, I am adding a Plaid Online contest for a chance to win $50 worth of Mod Podge accessories, as part of my role as Plaid Ambassador.  Please stop by A Crafty Arab on Facebook to enter to win:
