DIY: Christmas crackers
We love Christmas here at OHbaby! and one tradition that is loved but usually a bit of a disappointment, is what's inside our Christmas Crackers (or bon bons). Are we right? :)
This Christmas, make your own crackers with some good quality Christmas gift wrap. The cheesy jokes are, of course, a must-have!
You can then pick and choose what goes into your Christmas crackers! We've also provided the jokes as a free printable.
Check out the how-to video and instructions below
What you need:
Fold the paper on these points, so there is an inwards 'dent'
Once folded on both sides, cut diamond shapes out of the indented fold about 8mm apart each across the full width. (Hint: if you join the two indented edges together you can cut both at the same time - see video)
Once cut, stick double-sided tape to each end of the inside of the cracker.
Remove the tape and stick the card to the bottom adhesive strip.
Place your joke, treats and bonbon snap into the bonbon at the lower end. Remove the double-sided tape peel to reveal sticky tape, and roll the paper and treats together to the sticky tape and secure.
Tie each end with ribbons in a bow and voila - you can get cracking! :)
