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.
