Candy Surprise Eid Card Tutorial

With our big extended family, we realized we needed more Eid cards then the one we made last week.

So today we thought it might be fun to make a card that looks like a candy wrapper from the outside, but when you open it, it has a nice surprise inside.

For the “spring” fold the green strip of paper diagonally in the center.

Start folding the ends over each other, going back and forth until you get to the end.

Tape the end down so that it looks like a little “spring.” This will make the Eid Mubarak saying pop out when the person opens the card.

Decorate your card with crayons, strips of paper, markers or any thing else to make it a little more ornamental and look like a candy wrapper.
