A quick and easy Christmas cracker

Christmas cracker close up

Now here is one of the goodies that I was itching to get my hands on from my last order. It’s called a candy wrapper die but I think it also looks a lot like a Christmas cracker. As I explained before, this makes very quick work of creating a small box, perfect for a sweet treat, or gifting jewellery, or a whole host of other small items.

I stamped this one with a Christmas sentiment but you could just as easily write people’s names on and use them for place settings at the Christmas table.

The Candy Wrapper was cut from Real Red card using the Big Shot, folded along the score lines, adhered along the tabbed edge and assembled. Chocolate Chip Dots Ribbon was adhered around the cracker. After stamping the sentiment onto Whisper White card with Chocolate Chip ink it was punched with the Large Oval and matted onto a Scallop Oval of Chocolate Chip card. The small and medium Boho Blossoms were punched from Real Red and Lucky Limeade card respectively and then secured to the matted sentiment with a Mini Brad before popping up on dimensionals to cover the join in the ribbon.

The Mini Brads are another new product and so sweet! They’re dinky. You get 200 of them for £2.95. Be careful when opening the dish, there’s a lot of them to spill!
