Cracker Gift Holder

I love Christmas and everything about it so I wanted to join in again on the All Wrapped Up Challenge at Moxie Fab World and submit a project to the Shine on you Crazy Diamond Challenge at My Partner in Crafting Crime.

When I give a gift of money at Christmas I like to make little crackers as gift containers. Inside the cracker I put the money, some punched out snowflakes, a little treat and a silly joke - couldn’t have a cracker without one of those!

Christmas Cracker
Stamps (Hero Arts) Stunning Snowflakes & Holiday Dolls

I white embossed some white card with the Stunning Snowflakes and cut out the shape of a cracker using an old cracker as a template. Then I coloured the doll with markers, applied diamond stickles to the white edges on her hat\jacket and added a pompom to her hat. I tied the cracker with some twine and added a couple of gems – thanks Sue for these!
