Eid ul-Fitr 2011/1432 - Eid Banners

I managed to sneak in some time today between grocery shopping, freezing kebabs and marinating chicken legs to make some Eid banners/bunting.

The hardest bit is always getting the triangles for the banners right.  It took me a few attempts and lots of wrong pencil lines to figure it out.

Little Lady helped to choose colours and decorations for the lettering.  The lettering is usually a bit of work, but I found some good-sized glittery letters at Poundland this year.  The card used for the triangles is from DCWV's Blossoms & Butterflies Paperstack.  T e embellishments were whaterver the two of us could lay our hands on: gem body tattoos, craft gems, chipboard pieces and die-cut shapes (apologies to non-crafters, this must sound like another language).

Right, I'm off to prepare our last iftaar before I get a head-start on the Eid meal for tomorrow - Hubby called and said Eid would be tomorrow, much to the kids jubilation - and mine.  Hopefully hubby will get a moment to whisk me off outside to celebrate chand raaat (explanation of chand raat here).  It is absolutely crazy outside on the main road nera our house with shoppers packing the streets, henna stalls and jewellery stalls along the road and everything expected to be open to the early hours tonight.
