MashaAllah a sister I know made these henna jewelry boxes. She sells these in her etsy shop. This would make a nice craft.

I know you have tons of things to do to get ready for ‘Eid. How about just one more. Eid cards!
These cards are actually envelopes. However, the “card” part is glued into the center of the card envelope making it an envelope card!
The templates for the cards came from this site. (except for the rectangle one). I enlarged the original patterns to make the cards bigger.s
Here is what an envelope card looks like (I was not able to include this particular design in the template packet):
The templates are 2 pages per each envelope. The first page is the envelope template. The second page has the inner cards. Using the inner cards (A and B) is optional by the way.
Envelope Card Template Options
Choose from: Rectangular, Rounded Square Petal, Triangle Pentagon, Trading/Gift Card, Bon-Bon box

Make the “inner” cards

How to Close the Card
To close the card, fold each flap inward going in a circular direction. Then tuck the last flap under the first one.
Securing the Card
You can use ribbon, or string to keep the card closed completely. Or, use a boning tool to make a very tight crease along the fold lines. This works really well.
I’ll try to post some pics later. In the meantime, enjoy these See photos HERE.
