HUGE Cracker From 6 Small Crackers!!



Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my Blog on this gorgeous Sunday!! I hope you are all well & enjoying your weekend.  Today i have a Festive project for you! I love this Cracker, its so cool & so easy to make. Basically you make 6 small crackers then tie them all together, the outcome is one huge Cracker! Another great thing is that you only need 6 x 6" pieces of designer paper to make your Crackers.

I do suggest putting your gifts in a cello bag and then putting it in the cracker. It fills the Cracker up more and stops the gifts from falling out. I don't seem to have any problems when i do this.


I think it would make a perfect gift for anyone. You could fill each Cracker with little gifts or maybe just fill them all with sweets. I thought a good idea would be to fill one with Lipstick, another with Nail Polish etc. Or if you have crafty friends you could fill them all with small craft goodies! I really do love this idea. I also think they would make a great Teachers Christmas Gift. You could maybe fill them with Paperclips, Drawing pins etc.

I made my Crackers using the Gorgeous Festive Farmhouse Designer Paper. This is one of my Favourite Papers in the Seasonal Catalogue (well that & Santa's Workshop :-) . I really hope you will have a go at making these Crackers, it really looks fab when its all done.

DIMENSIONS

DESIGNER PAPER MEASURES 6 X 6" (YOU WILL NEED SIX OF THEM TO MAKE 6 CRACKERS)

SCORE ONE SIDE @ 2 7/8",  3 3/4" &  5 5/8"

SCORE THE OTHER SIDE @ 1",  1 1/4"  &  1 1/2"  DO THIS ON BOTH ENDS OF THE PAPER.

TAKE YOUR ENVELOPE PUNCH BOARD AND LINE UP AT 1 1/4" AND PUNCH AT EVERY FOLD.

Please check out my YouTube tutorial for full instructions.

Thank you for stopping by and i will be back later today to draw the winner for my YouTube giveaway.

Bye for now

This is the folder that i laminated.
