Homemade Christmas Crackers

Good evening, this is a very late post from me today as I’ve been busy busy busy!

Today’s YouTube tutorial shows how I make my Homemade Christmas Crackers.

DIY Christmas Crackers

I tend to visit the UK in November as its a good month to see family and friends and exchange Christmas presents. Every year me and my 6 other girlfriends from school get together and have a Christmas party. Its now become my thing to make Christmas Crackers. Last year I made pink very girly ones and they went down a treat.

This is the only picture I could find.

These are a great size and very easy to make.

To make these crackers you will need…

11.1/2 x 7.1/4 patterned card for each cracker all of the papers I used where from a A3 paper pack I purchased from Lidl in the UK

WRMK envelope punch board. Do not worry if you don’t own a punch board as I show in my tutorial below alternative ways to make them.

Ribbon to tie each end.

Cracker Snaps (optional)

A sentiment for the top (optional)

For all the scoring and where to punch with the envelope punch board please check out my tutorial below.

Hope you like this festive project from me today I have 2 other cracker designs to share with you over the coming weeks so stayed tuned for those.
