Christmas Crackers

Hello my crafty friends, I am so excited to share my project with you today.. I celebrated Christmas with my husbands family today and some of the kids only wanted money for Christmas (what's the fun in that).. So, I saw this super cute idea to make crackers from Prove Craft spokesperson Jinger Adams { Click HERE if you would like to see Jinger show you how to make these fun gifts} and I just had to make some adorable Christmas ones {with money & candy in them of coarse}.. :0)





Supplies I used:

*Empty Toilet Paper Roll
*Cracker Components bought from Olde English Crackers (to make the crackers POP open)
*Speaking Of Winter cartridge
*"Have a Cool Yule" stamp set ( Crafty Sprouts )
*Everyday Character Face Parts and More Stamps (Peachy Keen )
*Tissue Paper
*Christmas Pattern paper
*Snowflake Border Punch (Martha Stewart)
*Ink
*Ribbon
*Bakers Twine
*Rhinestones
*Hot Glue Gun (Imaginisce)

Challenges:
Frosted Designs -Fabulous Friday Challenge - Ribbon!
Peachy Keen Community Challenge- holiday wrapping projects with Peachy Keen Stamps
The Paper Variety - *Anything Goes*

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog.. Oh, make sure you stop by for some exciting "Getting Scrappy Challenge" news on Sunday :0)
