How to Make

  1. Fold a piece of A4 white card in half then draw half a simple mosque outline shape with half a dome in the middle. Cut around the outline then open the card.
  2. Cut strips of patterned paper to cover the cut-out mosque shape. Start by sticking bigger pieces over the main section and the dome. Trim off any overhanging pieces.
  3. Cut out 2 matching minaret towers from patterned paper then stick them in place on either side of the dome. Cut thin paper strips to decorate the mosque using a combination of patterns, plain colours and glitter card.
  4. Glue the mosque in the middle of black A3 card. Cut out a moon from glitter card then stick it on top of the dome.
  5. To make a border, cut out 14-15 patterned paper strips, 2-3cm x 12cm. Stick the strips around the edge of the background into a continuous pattern with the ends overlapping. Or design a different border if you prefer.
  6. Stick small glitter stars onto the background.
