Eid Money Envelopes

I decided to make life easier this Eid and give cash instead of gifts. This used to be the tradition when I was a kid and for my parents generation (it used to be called "Eidhi"). With this in mind I thought I would decorate some envelopes to put the money in.

I used all the big, bulky and chunky flowers I had in my embellishments box that I was unlikely to use for cards. These were a mixture of artificial flowers which had been taken apart, felt flower shapes, punched flowers, die-cut shapes and buttons. The lettering was stamped using Making Memories magnetic stamps, although the letter "r" decided to give me attitude and refuse to appear on the paper (I had to fill it in with a pencil).


  1. Awwwwww they are just sooooo fabulous :)

  2. As Salaam Alaikum,

    MashaAllah you are so very creative. I love visiting your blog to look at your cards and I also love the banner you made for Eid ♥♥♥

  3. Eid Mubarak to you and your family!
