Ready-made prayer shawl and torah cards are available online from Papyrus. A shofar blowing confetti, star-shaped or otherwise, is another novel idea incorporating a traditional symbol.

The tree of life is a classic theme for important celebrations. Draw the tree from scratch or use a design template or ready-made card and paste the objects onto it. These objects may replace leaves or be placed on leaves. Ideas include musical instruments or music notes, books, ballet shoes, a pony, ice skates, a dog or cat resembling a beloved pet, or flowers. Such card decorations are available from craft stores.Learn more about Holidays & Celebrations
