It’s a Cracker!


Today I bring you a Cut File with a set of Christmas Crackers, you get a  choice of 3 different edges, a straight edge, a zig-zag edge and a scalloped edge. I also have the straight edge and zig-zag edge versions for you as templates, simply print onto the reverse side of your chosen paper and cut along the solid lines with your scissors or craft knife and fold along the dashed lines. You could fill them with wrapped chocolates or you could personalise each Cracker with a name on the outside and a stocking filler inside, anything goes really…as long as it fits inside ;)

I chose the scalloped edge version for my Cracker today, the paper I picked was very thin so I also cut a card layer to make the finished Cracker much more sturdy. I folded all of the score lines (dashed lines) then rolled up the Cracker and overlapped one of the sections and stuck into place with double sided tape, this leaves you with a Hexagonal (6 sided) Cracker. I cut a couple of Snowflakes from here and here, I covered one with glitter then layered with 3D foam pads and added some gems and popped onto the middle of the Cracker. While I had the glitter out I added a strip of double sided tape to the ends of the Cracker just inside the scallops and covered with the clear glitter. I closed the ends up with some seam binding and tied into a bow then added some more gems because you can’t have too much glitter or sparkle at Christmas.

    What a wonderful cut file. I used your Noel and Xmas block letters to put on a can that I filled with truffles. The guys who will be getting those will love it! Thank you for so freely giving your designs. Hopefully after the holidays, I can make some items with your cut files just to have on hand…need to make a stash!

    Thanks for this cracker file. Love that you added extra files with different ends. I want to make the scalloped end. My question is why are there seven sections? Is this a fancier shape and not just a square cracker? Can you show us a different angle of your cracker so we can see the shape? Thanks again for sharing all your files with us. I love your work.

    duh! I just read your post and see it is a hexagon shape! So please ignore my query above. When in doubt, read the instructions! Right. lol
