MONEY PACKETS (ENVELOPES) IN ENGLISH & MALAY
As a child who grew up in Malaysia, I used to look forward to every Raya (Eid) because of the festive money! My sister and I would collect so many Sampul duit raya (Eid money packets) from parents, relatives, family friends etc. So basically, if you’re not married, you’ll get it! Its not a common practice back home to give out presents during Eid, though now, living in Australia and being married to a Lebanese, we do both traditions- give out presents and money to the little ones.
It is extremely hard, in fact, I don’t think I’ve seen any shops that give them out or sell them here in Melbourne. Every year I’d have to make my own ones or simply reuse old ones. So I thought it would be a great idea to give them out for FREE to all In My Studio Fans as part of my FREE DIY Confetti Collection Party Pack.
They are so easy to make, it only takes about a minute to finish 1. I have made it available in 2 languages, 1 in english (Eid Mubarak, Happy Eid) and another in Malay (Selamat Hari Raya, Salam Aidilfitri).
Materials needed for this project:
1. This printable template
2. A4 | 8×12” White paper (200 gsm | 110 lb +)
4. Cutter or scissors
5. Double sided tape/glue
Using a ruler as well as scissors/cutter, carefully cut out each template.
Then apply glue or sticky tape on the side flaps as noted on template.
I prefer using double sided tape as its less messy…so now peel it off…
And bring the back cover over, press it gently to make a finished money envelope.
Repeat the process until you have made your desired amount. There are a couple of designs that include ‘To & From” if you wish to name your money packets.
Now insert your money (notes are preferred over coins, the bigger the number, the better :p )
As for me, I have packaged these in a pack of 6 to give out to my parents and relatives, for free of course :)
