Christmas Crackers - Scrapbook Parade Class

This is going to be such a fun class! Who doesn't like cracking open a Christmas cracker to get the surprises inside? What I like is you can keep them as simple or make them as elaborate as you like! And, they are so easy to make. Right now sitting on the counter at Scrapbook Parade is a basket full of what looks paper strips. Well those are the strips that make the loud pop when a cracker is pulled open. They are just sitting there waiting for you to take them home and make some creative and personalized Christmas crackers for your friends and family.

Here are the four that we'll be making in class. And feel free to use your own creativity once we've made the basic cracker.

These are so fun to make! I could have kept going with different papers and embellishment ideas!

Here are photos of each one individually for you to see more detail.

If you are interested in a tutorial on how to make this kind of Christmas cracker, leave a message in the comments and I'll put together a tutorial after the first week in November, once the class has been completed. You have to let me know though if you want one.

Thanks again for stopping by. Love hearing form you and I hope you find some time to craft!
