  1. Measure 30 cms by 30 cms on the piece of cardboard and mark with a magic marker.
  2. Cut out the shape, and fold 2 cm from the edge to form the base of the Matza holder.
  3. Cut out the material in the same shape.
  4. Glue the material onto both sides of the cardboard with the glue gun or strong glue.
  5. Carefully glue down the edges of the sides to each other to form an open box shape.
  6. Cut out the shapes of the letters “mem”, “tsadi” and “hei “ and stick them on the side of the box. (You can do this on a couple of sides, if you want.)

Hey presto! You have just made a beautiful matza holder!!!!
