I’m only a quarter Jewish and didn’t grow up celebrating Passover but luckily, I have a lot of friends who did. This year, beginning in December I started working on wrangling myself an invitation to someone’s Passover Seder. There is just something so special about the way older generations pass down the story and the family traditions. Many families have a collection of Haggadot that have been collected throughout generations. We created a paper cover with a family photo to unify the collection and to serve as place cards for the Passover Seder. You could also print out photos of each individual family member. It’s just a little way to make each person feel special and welcome. (And the cover can easily be removed after Passover) Happy Passover! –Amy Azzarito
See the how-to after the jump!
- decorative paper for covering the Haggadah
- washi tape
- family photos
- butcher paper or other brown paper to create a place card tag.
- Cover the Haggadot just as you covered your textbook in school. Measure your paper to fix each Haggadah, You can use tape to adhere the paper to the outside cover.
- Print out family photos sized to fit on the front cover of the Haggadah.
- Make photo corners using washi tape. Simply cut the tape into two squares of the same size and then cut again diagonally to create corners.
- Create a name card tag using butcher paper or other brown paper. Write the name on the tag.
- Wrap the Haggadah with twine and attach the name card tag
