Christmas Cracker

It's me again.  This is the last post for today.  Clearing off my stamping desk for the third time today.  Whew, lots of stamping, cutting and gluing ... so much fun!

I played around with the Envelope Punch Board and the Simply Scored Scoring Tool today.  I enjoy working with these tools.  If you don't have one shop with me HERE and get yours today.

I used a DSP stack (4.5" x 6.5") as the base.  It was the perfect size for a 'Cracker.'  We put these at each place setting at Christmas.  They can also be laid on the branches of the Christmas tree or hung with a small adjustment in ribbon placement.  I found lots of videos on You Tube for different Christmas Crackers, but I followed the video by The Crafty Owl UK.  Here are the details on my cracker:
