Christmas Crackers?

For today's post, we have a video tutorial on how to make Christmas Crackers...not the edible kind!

Christmas-cracker-snowmanThese are fun little projects that you can put together to hold treats or small gifts.  In the video, you will see the how-to for this larger size pictured above and a smaller size, as well, so be sure to watch through the end.

You probably have the supplies on hand to make these in time for this Christmas.  Below are the details for each size of Christmas cracker.

Larger size:

  • Cut DSP to 8-3/4" x 9".
  • Score with the shorter side at the top every 1-3/4": 1-3/4", 3-1/2", 5-1/4", and 7".

Smaller size:

  • Cut DSP to 4-1/2" x 6".
  • Score with the 6" side at the tip at 1" and 5".
  • Turn and score with the 4-1/2" side at the top at every 1": 1", 2", 3", and 4".

Here are the supplies used for the projects.  Papers and inks are specifically for the larger project.  At the bottom of the list is the 1/2" circle punch for the smaller "cracker".

Christmas-cracker-santaYou can make these ahead of time and store them "flat" until you are ready to insert the gifts are treats. 

Christmas-cracker-storage We are just about a week away from Christmas but I still have a few ideas up my sleeve to share with you.  Be sure to check back!  I hope to be posting some fun between last minute baking, wrapping, and lots of merriment!   But for now, you need to try your hand at these Christmas crackers!
