Christmas Crackers!

I know, I know! Thanksgiving was just yesterday, but I couldn't wait to share these cute little Christmas Crackers!

I don't know about you, but I love it when you find different ways to use the same tool, so when my friend mentioned there was a video on how to make Christmas Cracker with the envelope punch board, I just had to go check it! Sure enough, there was and I couldn't wait to make some.

You need to use Designer Series Paper or another light weight paper when creating these, as you need to fold it and punch through 2 layers.

I wanted to use my current Christmas DSP,  but I only purchased the paper stack (Love It!!!) So I decided to change up the measurements and Voila! I actually like this size a little better as I found the original ones to be a little wide, but they would be great if you wanted to put in a paper crown and a little toy like actually crackers have!

To share my cracker measurements, I made a video tutorial for you! Remember, I used the DSP paper stacks (4.5" x 6.5") so I didn't have to PRE cut! Gotta love that!
Check it out and happy creating!
