Tuesday Tutorial Treat # 3 - - - EID GIFT WRAP IDEAS- - - Part 1

Eid is always fun but it makes me miss my family :(....

My father was in army and we lived in many different cities and after retairment my parents permanatly moved to Pindi but I had never celebrated any eid in city until I got married and moved to Islamabad. My parent's family & extended family is huge, covers almost all the village :) and its our custom that any one living outside village always come back to village to celebrate eid between relatives. My most amazing memory of eid is BONFIRE at chand raat with all cousins which we used to have a night before eid and it was basically a singing night.... the most horrible & confident singer used to win the award... lol and it was always my elder brother. I have never heard such an  amazing singer in my life ..... lol luv you asim bhai and I miss you soooooooooooo much...

After getting married my eid was spent between my husband's family and now living away from our family eid means shoping for kids, their entertainment, meeting friends and some of our family living here, making sheer khurma, channa chat and dahi bhala... :)

One think I love about eid is that it gives us a reason to connect to all your friends and family members with whom you dont meet that regularly. We always buy gifts for all our friends and family for eid. Today's tutorial is some gift wraps which I did for my friends and family. 

Sorry about the bad photography.... actually after falling 100 times my camera finally refused to focus :) Trust me they are looking far better then these pictures ....

Both of these gifts are first covered by brown sheets (we often use to cover kids school books) and then I added different stuff on them.

 I am happy about this gift wrap, as it came out exactly the way I was imagining :) I simply downloaded a word game from internet and in "paint" edited it according to my requirment. Making "EID MUBARAK" come in sequence. printed it on a white paper.

 Then made a felt flower, using above patterns.

Stitched the bottom end of all the petals. the way you can see in the above picture. Once stitching was done, wrapped all 3 strips on each other, starting from strip #1, from left to right. and done.

This is what I got.

Attached word game paper on the top and then pasted the felt flower along with a paper leave on it. Using blue marker outlined "EID MUBARAK". and done.

 For this one I made two felt flowers.

Cut two circles of black felt, in different sizes.

 Cut them as shown above.

 Using glue gun pasted the flower on a small piece of felt.

 This is the best pic I could get from my camera... keep gluing and rolling the felt around.

 I had few wasted small artificial flowers. I removed their stems, leaves etc and glued them with felt flowers. Then I wrapped some wool on the gift and added an "EID MUBARAK" card on the wool, pasted felt flowers and done.
