Christmas Crackers

Hello everyone, today I have a Christmas cracker to show you. I've wanted to have a go at making a cracker for a while so I eventually got my finger out and made one! The one I have done is fairly large and more suitable as packaging for a gift rather than pulling! I am going to enter this into the following challenges; Totally Gorjuss challenge 111 has a theme of "for someone special"...this little gift will be included with my husband's presents, and this week at Papertake they want to see your last christmas makes....I'm well and truly getting to the end of it all now!

The tutorial I used is here, it was really easy to follow and it gives you all the measurements etc. I used DP from DCWV, my DP is quite stury so I didn't put in the extra supports like the tutorial suggests. I also adapted the tutorial a little, I cut a window in the top and added some acetate so you could see the contents of my cracker, but obviously, this is optional.

I embellished my cracker with ribbon and added a sentiment using my Waltzingmouse Very Vintage Christmas Stamp set.

Card/Paper: Cream and kraft card. DCWV
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Very Vintage Christmas
Ink: Distress ink - antique linen, Memento tuxedo black
Embellishments: Ribbon
Tools: Nesties, trouvaille
