I have one more Christmas themed treat box to share before the BIG Day. As many of you may know I am an ex-pat Brit living in North Texas for a little over 16 years.
One of the Christmas traditions in the UK is to have Christmas Crackers on the table. In our family we used to pull them after we had eaten the main course and before we tucked into the dessert of Christmas Pudding and Mince Pies with either brandy butter or whipped cream.
Each cracker would contain a paper hat, a motto or joke and a little gift – the quality of which very much depended on how much you paid for the box of crackers! Today’s crackers contain Lindor chocolates ……
10 x 6 1/2 Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper
Score along the short side @ 1″, 2″, 3″, 4″ 5″ & 6″
Score along the long side @ 1 1/2″, 2″ & 2 1/2″ turn the paper around and score at the same intervals from the other edge.
Now check out the video to see what to do next………………..
My box was inspired by the Cotswold Crafter.
The greeting is from the Merry Little Labels stamp set, heat embossed in silver then cut with the 2″ circle punch. This was then layered onto Red Glimmer Paper cut with the Starburst Punch.
