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? :)

The cheesy jokes are, of course, a must-have! 

This Christmas, make your own crackers with our gorgeous OHbaby! custom Christmas gift wrap, available here

You can then pick and choose what goes into your Christmas crackers! We've also provided the jokes as a printable below.

Check out the how-to video and instructions below 

 

What you needWhat you need:

Scissors
Ruler
Double sided tape
Bonbon snaps
Ribbon
Treats (e.g chocolate, pencils, erasers, earrings, jewellery, 
Jokes for inside (download jokes here)
Card for inside the bon bon/cracker to keep it's shape (size around 8cm x 14.5cm)
Decorative elements (if you want eg: sequins)
Step 1:
Cut the gift wrap into sheets of paper 30cm (29.7 to be exact) by 16 cm

Step 2:
With your ruler and a pen on the non-printed side of the paper, mark at points 10cm, 8.5cm and 7cm, and 20cm, 21.5cm and 23 cm as guides to fold where the ribbons will be. 

Step 3: 
Fold the paper on these points, so there is an inwards 'dent' (see picture)
folderStep 4: 
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)

Step 5:
Once cut, stick double-sided tape to each end of the inside of the bonbon or cracker - whatever you want to call it :) (pictured above)

Step 6: 
Remove the tape and stick the card to the bottom adhesive strip.

Step 7:
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.

Step 8:
Tie each end with ribbons in a bow and voila - you can get cracking! :)
