01 Take a sheet of Santa paper and lay it down on a flat surface. Place the template on top, aligning the edges of the paper with the edges of the template. Trace the outline of the template, including the diamond shapes.
02 Remove the template and cut along the zigzag edges.
03 Use the ruler to mark fold lines through the middle of the diamond sections, and along the points closest to the edges.
04 Create a valley fold along the outer marked fold line, and a mountain fold along the centre of the diamonds.
05 Use the craft knife to cut out all the diamond shapes, cutting away from the body.
06 Attach a piece of doublesided sticky tape along one long edge of the cracker. Roll up the cracker, bringing the two long edges together and stick them in place with the tape.
07 Insert any gifts, jokes, hats, and prizes, then cut two lengths of twine – there will be enough twine for all eight crackers.
08 Tie the twine in a bow at either end, pushing the folds in to create the cracker shape.
09 To make the elf cracker, at Step 1, copy the solid lines at the right-hand side of the template onto the face end of the paper. At Step 2, cut along the solid lines to create the hat shape.
10 To finish the elf crackers, glue a pom pom to the point of the hat at the front. To finish the snowman crackers, glue three pom poms down the centre, over the illustrated buttons.
