Ramadan is a month of sharing and giving. So thought why not invite a blogger who help us make a wonderful gift to share with our loved ones. Nielouphar Abdurahiman also known as Neelu from PrettyPaperstudio
is sharing with us wonderful craft project. Lets check what Nilu has in store for us.
Thank you Huma for inviting me to
share a ‘craft’ recipe on Gheza-e-Shirin this Ramadan.
Just as we were anticipating and
gearing up for Ramadan, we are now closing towards Eid Al Fitr. If you are like
me, and I know you are, you would be looking for ideas to make this Eid even
more memorable than the previous ones.
Hence, I thought of sharing this
step by step tutorial on making party favor bags yourself at home.
This year, let’s give Eidi in favor bags that we made
Kraft paper or cardstock
One hole punch
Washi / Decorative Tape
Brads (or embellishments)
1. Place your favors inside the bag and fold the envelope to close. I love using a bone folder or ruler to give a good uniform crease. (Pardon my old, shabby ruler)
2. Punch out circles from the kraft
cardstock using the circle punch to make gift tags. If you do not have a circle
punch, you could simply use scissors. You could also cut out tags in shapes
other than circle.
3. With the one hole punch, punch
a tiny circle as shown in the picture. This is for the twine to pass through.
4. Pass the washi tape across the
bag vertically. Washi tapes are basically masking tapes with designs and easily
adds a beautiful affect to your crafts. They are forgiving as in you can peel
them off after sticking without damaging the surface.
5. Write your message on the tag
with the black marker.
6. Once you finish writing your
message on the tag, pass it through the twine.
7. Tie the twine across the favor
bag just as the washi tape.
8. Finish with a brad or any
embellishment you like.
Your party favor bag is now ready
for giving away. Making your own party favor bags not only lends a handmade
touch to your giveaways but also allows you to get creative and play with cute
