Christmas Crackers

CelebrateChristmasPaper CraftSimple Project

This Christmas, I will be making my own Bonbons/Crackers. The fabulous designer wrapping used for the Who Gives A Crap Christmas toilet paper has inspired me. It features the work of 12 artists/illustrators; each wrapper design is based on one of the 12 day of Christmas (from the song).

Some of the designers include James Gulliver Hancock , Georgia Perry , Ellen Porteus.

There will be a few kids at my Christmas this year, so I have picked some fun kid friendly toys to put in the bonbons. I even found a hilarious toilet paper joke!

What you need:

Materials:

  • Who Gives A Crap toilet paper wrapper, cut into 30.5cm x 19cm cover with fabric and warm iron to flatten.
  • Toilet rolls
  • Bonbon snaps (I got mine from Spotlight)
  • Tissue paper crowns click here to make your own
  • Jokes Click here to print some kid friendly jokes
  • Small toy or gift. I have selected a Christmas chocolate, a balloon and a bubble blower ring.
  • A4 paper cut into 21cm x 5.5cm strips – you will need 2 for each bonbon for stiffing ends.
  • String
  • Star stickers for decoration.

 Tools:

  • Glue gun
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
