"Upcycle" Eid Gift Envelopes From The Ramadan Joy Blog
You don't need glossy wrapping paper to make a gift personal. Sometimes, if not every time, handmade says 'heart made' and mean...
Eid and Ramadan are a time to give and keep giving. Here is a quick but creative project by Khadija Annette from the Ramadan Joy blog who truly knows what it means to recycle the kindness.

Upcycle Eid Gift Envelopes
- Get hold of a used envelope that's not torn and glue (non-toxic) your own label over the written address section.
- Or stamp the envelope with paisleys and stars in purples and blues, be creative.
- And if you don't own a set of rubber stamps, grab some coloured markers and decorate the entire envelope in a repeating pattern.
- Alternatively, use this template to cut an envelope out of a sheet of 12"x12" patterned paper, fold and glue to make your own envelope.
- I would recommend saving clean scrap papers for projects like this. Secure them with a bulldog clip and re-use for gift-wrapping and list-making. Even regional newspapers and newsletters make really quirky "upcycled" envelopes to send gifts abroad.
- Create your own labels or download these name badges to write the names of each child and to seal the envelopes.
Print or handwrite a personal 'seal' to close the envelopes.
