What you Need
The supplies are very simple, for each display you will need:
Cut 8.5 x 11 in half cardstock width wise. That means you will have a card that is 8.5 x 5.5. this is your Base. Use my template to print and cut.
Cut a strip of paper 11″ x 2.5″ This is your tent
cut a piece of with ribbon or material fo the “carpet”
Print and cut the Banner
Print out the “Happy Ridván” tag or write your own
Print the pattern for the roses or buy from dollar store.
Embellish with stickers , images from magazines or print and cut images you like such as butterflies, flowers, birds etc.
The Assembly is very easy.
First take your base that was cut 8.5 x 11 and fold in half so your card is 4.25 x 5.5. open it so that it is 90 degrees, you have a base and a back.
Take the strip of paper that is for the tent and fold in half so you now have 5.5 x 2.5. Next on each end bend the edges back by 1″ to create a tab. Glue the 1″ tabs on to the base of the card to form a upside down “V” that will be the “tent”
Put the mat inside the tent.
stick “Happy Ridván” on base of card
Glue flowers around the tent
Glue the banner to the back of the card or use small clips to hold in place
All any other embellishments you like such as birds, butterflies etc.
