Do you like to make nice little gifts to give your friends, coworkers and loved ones?Are you the type that throws a bag of candy on the desk and calls it good?  Or do you like to make the candy taste better and mean more because it’s in handcrafted packaging?

Christmas crackers are something fun that we’ve only come across when Ann lived in England.  In fact, her old neighbor there sent her some Christmas Crackers from England the first few years that she lived here just in case Ann missed them.  People actually use them at more than just Christmas.  They can be used at birthday parties or any celebration where people want to have fun!

Well, if you’re the handcrafted kind of stamper, then this fun video project is for you!  And we’ll list all the things you need to make under the video below.  Just remember that these are done best with Designer Series Paper.  Card stock is too thick for this project.  They need to be easy to pull apart by holding the ends.

Ann found the most authentic Christmas Cracker supplies here.  They had hats, snaps, jokes and trinkets that were perfect for the inside of the cracker.  A nice sized cracker using the Envelope Punch Board might be starting with a 7-1/2″ x 10-1/2″ scored at 1-3/4″
