Christmas Crackers

Hi everyone,

I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful day yesterday!

Each year for the past thirty odd years or so I have been creating my own Christmas crackers to use on Christmas Day. Last year for the first time I made the Square shaped Christmas Crackers using the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Maker, I loved the look of those so I decided to make more of those type of Crackers this year. 

I also found some gorgeous Cream and Gold Designer Poster Board at my local Scrapbook Shop in dots and stripes which I decided to use this year.

To decorate my crackers I used Elizabeth Craft Designs Poinsettia die set. The bottom red layer and the small flower on top were die cut by adhering Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet to the red cardstock prior to die cutting and then covering the adhesive with True Red Silk Microfine Glitter. I die cut the solid flower again to make the leaves.

The striped crackers were for the males and the polka dot for the females.
