My week has been rather a hectic one what with fending off Penguins arriving supposedly from my Sweet heart via Iceland and keeping track of that wretched Elf, I got the very bright idea of making Crackers for the kids Christmas Day tables!! Now next time I get a brainwave like that will someone please remove the battery . Four days later and here are the results. All posted off and received special delivery to my Daughter and Son for their respective families to open.
First box is for Fluff and Co.
I went to a John Next Door work shop a while back and amongst other items we made a cracker using his die for the cracker base.(JND139 Facated Cracker) Of course at the end of the day the die along with a lot of the other dies we used made their way into my shopping trolly. The original crackers we made was in craft card but not being a lover of it I batch made these ones using red and green card stock. I then die cut various design papers and hand cut the triangles and stuck them on individually. The names are blanked out as I adhered them as I went along. The contents have been personalised so didn't want them getting muddled up. They all include a gift, party popper and a joke. I scoured the internet for appropriate jokes for each one.
Second box is for Not so little Boy anymore and Co. Rather a bigger box as an extended family around table.
