Christmas Cracker Tutorial
'Joy to the world'....... today I have mostly been making Christmas crackers... I have just uploaded a video here on how to make these and it starts with the paper already marked out to save a little time and desk space :) I have drawn out the template below, this is based on a tube that is from giftwrap and measures 3.5cm wide and the tube is 7cm long so a little smaller than a toilet roll but the formula can be translated easily.. see pic and comment if you don't understand :) I hope you like them, there are loads of tutorials for them out there so this is just another but in my style :)
You will need..
Basic craft tools such as,
double sided tape
shredder scissors although you can just use a knife or plain scissors these just save time
embellishments for decoration
ribbon or string to tie up ends
written out jokes or messages
My next tutorial will be glitter globes...
I will be doing a Christmas issue mag as quickly as I can go to my link on the right for the first 'icraft' issue and for my shop where I have lots of new goodies for sale but please note there are LOADS more on my facebook page in folders that I haven't uploaded to any shop yet so go look :)
Have a great day xxxx and let me know if you are able to comment on this blog via a comment left here or on my facebook page or email as I have had loads of people saying they are unable to comment on my posts :(
