This design was so much fun to create! Making a pattern that was highly detailed and reminiscent of Islamic patterns was a unique challenge, and I am quite pleased with the results. I had a follower reach out about doing a Ramadan design this year, and suggested the black and gold color pallet to me, and I think it was a perfect choice!

I’ve included two similar designs with slightly different applications. One is a layered design that could be used as part of a decoration or a larger art piece. The other moon design connects to a base and can have a tealight behind it, or it can simply stand on its own.

Although there is no official symbol of Islam, the moon and star have become synonymous with the religion. The crescent moon is commonly depicted during Ramadan, as it marks the start of a new month in the Islamic calendar, and indicates the beginning of the celebration.

Both versions of my designs include a star that can be attached with a piece of thread (and some beads, if you would like), or can be used separately. The moon with a base includes two moon and star pieces that can be layered together for extra rigidity. When you insert the tabs on the bottom of the moon into the base, fold them in opposite directions, and it will help the moon stand straight more easily. Be sure to do this step before assembling the rest of the base!

I use Adobe Illustrator for all of my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other fun freebies available on my blog!

Enjoy putting this Ramadan moon project together. And don’t forget to share your lovely, finished creation with me on Instagram!

      I haven’t tried cutting it out of wood, so I can’t say for sure. If you have a laser cutter, you might have better luck. I think it may be a little too detailed for a Cricut (as far as wood goes), but I don’t know. Best of luck!

    Thank you so much for the design! Are those score lines on the black support base? Do I need to attach them or change the function to score lines? Also, if I wanted to make the design bigger, do I select all at the same time to keep everything in proportion?

      Yes, those are score lines. You’ll need to set them as such and attach them to the base shape before sending the design to cut. For more detailed instructions, check out this tutorial video.

      And yes, just make sure you have everything selected if you’d like to change the size. 🙂

    Good morning! I can not seem to load this image into Cricut Design Space. It tells me it is an unsupported file type. Your site shows .svg, but when I download the image files and extract them, all I see is .html files. What am I doing wrong?
    Thanks

      Hi Donna! Sorry you’re having trouble. It sounds like you are encountering the file renaming issue that has been cropping up with some Windows computers lately. Follow the instructions in this article, and it should fix your problem. 🙂

        Thanks for the information. It didn’t, however, allow me to open the file. I’m still getting an error message. I appreciate the information though. Thanks again
