This is for Bah! Humbug! challenge 3, which is about Christmas Crackers. It took awhile for me to figure out this one, since I wasn't familiar with what a cracker was. In the end, my daughter came up with the idea to make one using instructions she found online. (She'll be posting her information shortly, and should include more specifics).
My cracker is made using Christmas papers and coordinating Christmas tree sticker that were in our stash. The striped paper was edged using a Fiskars punch and the white center band was embossed with a swiss dot embossing folder. Scrap ribbon finished off the cracker. The paper was a bit stiff, so I would probably try to use thinner paper in the future. It would make twisting and tying much easier and would result in a tighter finished product.
This was another fun challenge. I'm looking forward to the next one!
