My Handmade Christmas Cracker Template

Ho Ho Ho Cakettes!!!!

   A couple of years ago, my Christmas tree decoration theme was metallic greens, purples, pinks and blues. Yes I do change the theme every year..

   Anyway, I wanted tiny little Christmas crackers to match, so I decided to create my own templates so   that I could make my own...

So this is what the crackers looked like...

Okay.. So they are a little bright..

But it did match my decoration... :)

And the best part is, you can add whatever you want inside them.. I chose Ferrero Rocher just because they are so yummy!!!

So this year I have decided to revisit my old template and create these little crackers to decorate my Christmas table...

Of course I had to use my favourite Christmas paper collection at the moment, the noel collection by Dovecraft.

   I believe this is a collection which was released last year, but I have been in love with it since...
   Everything I love about Christmas is in these papers.. From traditional Christmas scenes to snowflakes to vintage looking Santas.. Gotta love it...

    So when I designed the template, I had only designed the hexagonal shaped cracker but this year I have altered my original template so that i can have a traditional rounded cracker too.. So I've ended up with two templates.

   I think this year's Christmas crackers turned out really cute..

So this if the hexagonal shaped cracker, it's the first template I made all of those two years ago.. :)

The distressed edges give it more of a vintage look which I thought was perfect for the paper...

The glittery paper also helps with the final look. Love glitter!!! :)

And then of course, the traditional shaped crackers.. Simple rounded shape...
Still very cute though...

Snowflakes in a red "christmassy" paper.. Just beautiful....

And of course, the candy cane stripes.. who doesn't love those?

   So here's the good news!!!!! Just like my previous templates I will be sharing the files with my beloved Cakettes!!! YEEEIIII!!! :)

  1. Becca these are so cute and such a lovely idea too. We always put Crackers on the table at Christmas. I think Im might have a wee go and this year make everyone little individual pressies like a keyring for the men and like a metal tassel for the ladies to hang from their handbags. Mind you, there is usually between 18-22 people at our house for dinner on Christmas, so I better get started if I want these all finished in time! Thanks so much for the inspiration, template and videos. Lee x

  2. Thank you for the files and tutorials. You do a wonderful job!
