Last Minute Christmas Crackers! We have all done it. Been so organised that we forgot a vital part of the Christmas Table. In my case this has been Crackers on more than one occasion. I now have the solution. Make your own! And it can be a great way to use up some of your stash. Plus you get to chose the perfect gift to put in each cracker. In my case, all the crackers had chocolates in them, other than mine, which had peppermint candy, because, as you know, chocolate and I do not get on.
I have had some of the Joyous Noel papers hanging around for a while now. This Specialty Designer Series Paper sold out some weeks ago, so using it in videos seemed wrong. But this video is all about using up and using what is to hand, so I can finally get to use it in a fun project. You will need an envelope punch board and something to score with. The Simply Scored is my Score Board of choice, but you could use the Stampin’ Trimmer. Just be a little careful that you don’t split the paper when you score it.
I love how the set of crackers turned out, but they work just as well in plan Whisper White or Very Vanilla (just don’t try it with the thick versions or coloured card! Trust me!!!) If you want a clean elegant look, then Very Vanilla and gold would be my colour scheme of choice, as you will see in the video and pictures, this is a stunning look.
