Hi there. I thought I’d try and sneak one last Christmas post in before the big day arrives. I sat down Friday afternoon and made up some Christmas crackers for our family dinner on Tuesday. We are hosting this year and I like to have special little things on the table that I’ve made. I started off with a piece of patterned tissue paper, a strip of wrapping paper, a snap, a toilet paper tube and a bit of yarn to tie the ends closed.These were pretty easy to do. I looked up the ‘recipe’ on the internet and found this site which has great step by step instructions. I decided to use tissue paper for the main part of the cracker and then wrapped the middle with a strip of wrapping paper, but you could use a light weight scrapbooking paper or wrapping paper just as easily for these.
I finished them off with a tag and a little poinsettia flower which were cut out with the Cricut.
So are you dying to know what’s inside? I kept it simple and fun, and added in some Lindt chocolates and a kid friendly Christmas joke. Each person will be required to read their joke out loud at the table. I know my kids will love this.
And our dear little indoor kitty cat, wondering what the heck is falling out of the sky!
