Happy Eid Pop-Up Wrap {Tutorial}

ACraftyArab Happy Eid Cut Out Wrapping Paper

Eid Al Adha is September 12th, 2016. This holiday is celebrated by Muslims around the world.

 

We have a very special someone in our life who recently performed hajj and we wanted to give them a book as a gift.  To wrap our gift, we  decided to cut out the words Happy Eid in 3D as an extra fun touch to the outside of our gift.

 

Supplies

Plain white wrapping paper
Clear cellophane or tissue paper
Happy Eid template, flipped backwards
Scissors
Double sided tape
Ruler
Xacto / Cutting mat

We started by measuring our gift box and cutting out a piece of our star green cellophane in the same size as the top.  You’ll just need a piece under your cut out letters.  Lay your box on your white wrapping paper and cut out a piece that will fit.

When you print your letters, flip them so they are backwards. Double tape the letters to the white paper. You’ll need to do a practice wrap of the white paper to figure out where to tape your letters so they will fit on the front of your box.  Use your xacto to cut out the letters in the halfway point.  Use our photo below as a guide on how to cut each one.

Use the back of your xacto to make the crease in the half way point of each letter.

For the H I and D, you’ll cut horizontially, for the A and Y, you’ll cut vertically. The P will only fold at the round portion, so you’ll need to cut out the vertical line and for the E, you’ll just cut out all three horizontal lines.

Take your template off and push all the paper back through the cut outs.  Add more double sided tape and secure the cellophane to the back of the letters.  Wrap your gift.
