A Christmas-Style Cracker

Today I have a project I made for the Scribble and Scrap Blog to show you. I call it a Christmas-style cracker because I haven't used Christmas papers. Crackers are a fun way to wrap small presents or can be used instead of party bags or for wedding favours. To find the tutorial on how I made this cracker please visit the Scribble & Scrap Blog where you will also find the link for our current challenge where the theme is always Anything Goes.
I used papers and a topper from the Owl Card Kit 2, exclusively available from the Scribble & Scrap webshop, to make this cracker. It was quick and easy to do and a great way to use small toppers.

I kept this cracker quite simple for the purpose of the tutorial, but you can go to town with layers, ribbons and embellishments. I'll be making more of these and using holly leaf and snowflake die-cuts and lots of glitter. Then they really will be Christmas crackers.
Why don't you try making one, or more, of these and entering them in our current challenge?
And keep an eye on the Scribble & Scrap Blog as the DT will be adding more tutorials for you over the next few weeks.
