This morning I was doing a little bit of a DIY to include in my Ramadan decor this year. I made these cute little mosques and am going to use them as a centerpiece to my Ramadan table. They’re going to look so cute when it’s all done! I’ll be sure to post a picture on my Facebook page.
I got this idea from Sweet Fajr. It is a cute website from a Swedish woman who has very impressive DIY’s! I need to try out her Ramadan and Eid pop-up cards next.
I printed the templates off of her site – here is the link.
I followed her instructions – and btw a bone folder is something used to fold something, not a bone colored folder. It took me a while to figure that one out. I’m not a super di duper crafter, maybe that’s why. I used beige card stock as paper that I had leftover from printing tickets for an event. Yay! They finally came in handy.
A few tips, you NEED the craft pad and exacto knife for this. Sharp scissors won’t get the precise cuts you need. It does take some time, I split this up into two days just to give my fingers a rest. I used some double sided tape to tape it all together and that was that.
For mine, I wanted to copy what the blog showed, and had an extra mosque in there but didn’t have a template for it. So the middle mosque is something that I freehanded. I don’t think it turned out that badly, but definitely not as nice as hers – but it’ll work.
It’s a cute little project and would be fun to do with older kids, as long as you’re the one handling the exacto knife.
