CHRIST­MAS CRACK­ERS

Your Home and Garden - - Your Projects -

Cre­ate in­di­vid­ual crack­ers for the ta­ble – your fam­ily and guests will love the thought you put into choos­ing some­thing just for them.

HOW TO:

+ The key to mak­ing these crack­ers look luxe is the pa­per – we used a gold mock-croc wrap­ping pa­per. Cut the pa­per into six pieces 32cm x 15cm.

+ Place a cracker tube, toi­let roll tube or sec­tions of a wrap­ping pa­per tube in the mid­dle of each sheet. Wrap pa­per around the tube and use dou­ble-sided tape to se­cure.

+ Slot in your cus­tomised gift then tie each end of the cracker with a 50cm length of rib­bon.

Gift sug­ges­tions: Pens are use­ful and gen­der-neu­tral; wrapped lol­lies or in­di­vid­ual treats are al­ways a hit; a small nail pol­ish or nail clip­per is an­other cute idea.
