Hello! Hi! Hello! It’s been a while. And that’s all on us, we know. We’re sorry. But, really, Ramadan, as lovely and magical and wonderful as it is (and it so very is), gets a little hectic sometimes. Especially when you have little kids out of school and underfoot. But we’ve gotten back on track. We really have. We’ll be posting about our London and Paris trip soon. We promise!
But in the meantime, here’s a little printable to tide you over. A little back story: We’ve been hosting suhoors every Friday for 40 people at our house since this Ramadan started, and since cleaning up after said 40 people is slightly sanity-threatening, we use paper napkins and plastic utensils. Except we had to pretty up the IKEA paper napkins and plastic utensils we were using, so we made Ramadan Kareem napkin rings! Plus. We love printables and use them a lot, consider this our little pay it forward.
It’s not much, as design whizz isn’t exactly how I would describe myself, but it’s very versatile if you have a fotoor, dinner, or suhoor party. Or as food or gifts tags! Just print them out and use them any way you like.
But for this post we’ll only be showing how to make the temporary napkin rings. On to it, shall we?
– Paper (normal printing paper for the napkin rings, get thicker cardstock for tags and place cards. Both can be found at Jarir.)
– Scissors/Paper Guillotine
– Glue or stapler (or double sided tape, which we don’t recommend)
And that’s it! Make sure you’ve alloted enough time to make these, or otherwise you might find yourself in a rush to get everything done. Especially if you’re a stickler for straight lines. *shudders*
And tada! The darkness of the photos is so you get the entire ramadan feels. Geddit? Since everything works at night? Yes? No? Er. Okay.

We hope these’ll be useful to you! And feel free to show us what you’ve made of them, we’d love that.
