Huge, Jumbo Christmas Cracker

Good morning everyone.

Well, this was a mammoth project!

Here are my Massive, Mega, Huge, Jumbo DIY Christmas Crackers


The inspiration for this came after I saw this Zoella Christmas cracker in Superdrug.


I instantly knew I could make one and went even bigger!



These are perfect for those bigger gifts and would easily hold thick jumpers and shoes.

To make these you will need…

2 pieces of patterned 12 x 12 card my paper was purchased from The Works in November 2017

Score along one of 12′ sides at 5.3/4 & 11.1/2

4 pieces of plain coloured 6 x 12 card.

Score along the 12′ side at 5.3/4 & 11.1/2

Score along the 6′ side at 2, 3.3/4 & 5.1/2

Approximately 2 lengths of 36′ long ribbon.

Large gift tag. I used the 3 largest of my Circle nest dies.

Silver bells optional for decoration. I purchased mine from the Pound Shop.

Check out my full tutorial below to see how I put these together and where you need to cut to form the cracker ends.


I cant wait for the recipients to receive this gift, I want someone to make me one…Mum!?


Thank you for stopping by, I really hope you like this project and give it a go.

Enjoy your week.
