Winter Wonderland #5 - A Christmas Cracker

The challenge at Winter Wonderland is a real challenge for all of us crafters. It is to make a christmas cracker. Please be upstanding as this is the first ever one I have made. So if it looks rather amateur this is why. I do hope you can find time to do one it is so rewarding once it is completed. I think I will make our own this year.
I am in Butlins on holiday right now so I have scheduled this post to go out. I am hoping the weather is good and I am enjoying myself see you all when I get back :)


what you will need:
Toilet roll
Christmas design paper - I made my own out of a piece of A4, Greeting farm stamp and promarker and copic pens
fancy punch
coordinating paper
Something to put inside your cracker.

I firstly decorated the A4 paper. I then took my first toilet roll and placed it in the centre of the paper. I then rolled it around the toilet roll. I used some doublesided tape to secure it. I also used the other two toilet rolls to ensure the paper kept it's shape and the snapper stayed in place. I then pulled them out and twisted one end of the roll. I secured with fancy string. I then added the treats to the inside and secured the other side.
I used my fancy punch to make a pretty edge to each end of the cracker and I made and oval for my main image to sit on.
