Assalamualaikum my lovelies! Our Eid Lantern template 2016 is a little different to previous years. I decided to make it a bit more simplified to accommodate for our younger audience (under 3′s) as the usual lantern was a tad harder for them to construct.
You can still download my previous years Eid Lanterns below, they are more suitable for over 4′s as its a bit more complex in putting it together. I have included step by step photos to make your life easier :)
2013 Eid Lantern (Confetti: Lime, Yellow, Orange)
2014 Eid Lantern (Golden Marrakesh: Mint and Gold)
2015 Eid Lantern (Geo Scandi: Black and Pink)
If you’re planning to decorate your lanterns like how I’ve done in these photos, you will also need some coloured paper at home to print the template on, so it makes cutting a lot easier. I have attached a plain lantern template for you to download. I reckon alternating the sprinkles lantern with a plain coloured pastel lantern looks better visually as it breaks it up rather than having way too many sprinkles going in on your living room, right?! Haha!
Assalamualaikum! Hope your first week of Ramadan fasting went well. We are now just going into our second week, how fast time flies subhanallah.
I wanted to release these Eid money packets as our first Eid freebie for 2016! I figured, get them done and dusted as early as possible to avoid any last minute rush. The decorations are more fun and interesting, so we can do that a bit later closer to Eid! I will be releasing one set each week in Ramadan so do check back regularly or follow me on Instagram and Facebook for updates!
These are the materials you will need to complete this little project. Scissors (or stanley knife), glue (or double sided tape) and the template (Download link at the end of this post)
Step 1: Cut the template according to the solid lines.
Step 2: Fold according to the dotted lines.
Step 3: Glue or put some double sided tape
Step 4: Assemble! Too easy right?
Now, add your money…and post it to me! Haha
