3-D Eid Gift Wrap
Eid al-Fitr is about the spirit of giving. Save this gift-wapping idea for family and friends, or even a Secret Eidi exchange. The mosque motif on these presents can be regarded as a nod to Eid prayers that happen in the morning.

This idea comes from our friend Manal Aman of Hello Holy Days! The printable template includes a round dome and curved dome in both large and small sizes to accomodate a gift box of almost any size.
- Yellow honeycomb paper
- Cardstock in ourple, yellow, blue, and pink
- Gold striped scrapbook paper
- Gold washi tape
- Purple gift wrapping paper
- Star confetti
- Double-sided tape
Wrap gifts in purple gift-wrapping paper.
Print the template to trace out half a dome onto the honeycomb paper; cut out.
Cut out a rectangle from the cardstock paper; this will be the base structure of the mosque topper.
Expand honeycomb paper to form dome shape. Secure to gift box with double-sided tape.
Trace minaret from template onto cardstock paper; add to mosque topper.
Cut out a door from cardstock and paste. Embellish with washi tape and stars.
