Creative Christmas #5: DIY English Crackers.

I usually buy crackers for Christmas, but this year I wanted to make my own.
Well, they won't pop, but I like them so much that I don't mind...


I kept them natural and eco- friendly, using cardboard rolls saved from the bin, kraft paper and twine. I mixed up different types of twine to make them interesting, and added cute handmade clay stars sparkled with powder glitter.



Each cardboard roll was filled with treats, a wooden heart and a wish ticket, instead of the usual small gift and joke.


And then, after the photoshoot, you know how it goes! LOL



Kim had a treat too :)
