Christmas Crackers

Hi all,

Yesterday was a wonderful day with family. I laid the dining room table the night before and added my own crackers this year! I used the following tutorial to make the crackers using my favourite Christmas colour combo of Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive along with the now retired Jolly Holiday DSP and matching ribbon. Treats inside consisted of everyone's favourites; various Lindt chocolates, Quality Streets, Jelly Babies and Ferrero Rocher, along with a cheesy Christmas joke :)

Here's my one below:
