Project number 2 of my Christmas Series is this cute shadow box containing 4 mini Christmas crackers.
This is a lovely way to gift 4 different gifts or as an individual table or party favours.
I haven’t added the snaps into these crackers, but it’s easy to if you wish. I have a Cracker playlist with some other larger designs I’ve made, you can see my playlist here.
These are also great to make early and store away flat until you need them.
The shadow box is a great size and great on its own, it will hold smaller clothing wrapped in tissue perfectly.
