Purim – Let’s make some noise!

During the reading of the Book of Esther, the "Megilla", during Purim, listeners use a noisemaker, or grogger/gragger,  whenever Haman's name is mentioned during the reading – to “blot out the name of evil”. 

Here, EtsyChai team member Terri (terrbear37.etsy) shows us how to make our own noisemaker out of paper and includes a really nice rubber-stamp technique called Joseph’s Coat to decorate it:

After watching the how-to video, you can print the pattern, here, and make your own.

Thanks to Terri of Cards & More by Terri (terrbear37.etsy).  You can also watch more great technique videos at her blog.
