Are you done getting your Eid gifts ready? Still have some things to get done? How about handmade Eid cards? The best thing about creating your own Eid card is that it can be framed and kept as part of Eid decor for the next year, so it makes a great gift! Dont forget to add a little note to the receiver so that they can frame the card, alternatively, you can also add a little frame with the card as part of the gift.
You also get the benefit of taking a creative break for yourself, watercolour painting is very therapeutic! Plus it is a great activity for the kids. I created this video tutorial to paint easy cherry blossoms (perfect for this season!) and you can modify as you like, colours, or even the type of flowers. Have fun!
