MAKE THESE CHRISTMAS CRACKER FAVOURS
I can’t deny it. I love me a good cracker! The reality is though that they’re filled with pretty…shall we say, un-chic items?! That’s why making your own crackers and filling them with super cute things is a must! You get to add your own personal spin & they’ll look so pretty on your table!
YOU WILL NEED:
Cracker snaps // glue // card // scissors // vinyl // cracker template // sweets or mini gifts for inside // snap template // bang template // pop template // (or alternatively you can use stickers for the crackers or get creative with a sharpie!) // Wrapping paper // Cricut Explore or stanley knife (please note using a stanley knife will take a lot longer)
Upload the cracker template to the Cricut design space or download and print it onto coloured card and cut around all of the lines.
Score down either side of the triangle pattern and fold the card where you have scored. Next glue your cracker snap in to what will be the inside of the cracker (as shown in photo)
Flip your cracker over and glue your wrapping paper to the outer edges of the cracker, you’ll need to also make a slit again where the original ones were as the wrapping paper will now be covering them!
Next, fill up your cracker with goodies & delights and roll it up towards you, push the flaps into the relevant holes and lightly glue in place.
Download the templates for snap, bang and pop and cut them out onto vinyl using your Cricut then stick in place in the centre of the cracker! Alternatively you can write your words on with a sharpie or use some stickers.
Then that’s it you’re done! So much more fun than your classic cracker & pretty darn stylish if you ask me! I can’t wait to snap, bang & pop these on Christmas Day! Xxx
These Christmas crackers are literally cracking! We love them! What a great idea for the guests!
We are so glad you love them xxx
Beautiful! Love them.
