DAY 13 - Christmas Inspiration

Hello Crafters,

Welcome to day 13 of my 30 days of Christmas Inspiration.  I hope that you are enjoying following the posts.  I am really appreciating the comments that are being left!

Today I have another Hobby House project which we are doing in class today and it is a little change from a card ...........
It's a cracker!

I thought this would make a lovely project to use as a base for one of the Hobby House toppers.  I have used the Tonic square cracker die which cuts a treat and scores all the lines that you need to fold the cracker correctly.
I have used Hobby house christmas cardstock which matches a treat.
A circle of glitter card and a snowflake cut from a contrasting cardstock makes a lovely backdrop for the topper.  Ribbon and beads finish the project off.
This would make a lovely gift idea with something inside.  One of the ladies in the class also suggested using it as a place setting on the Christmas table - good idea Julie! 
This is a side view to show you the depth of the cracker ~

I hope that you like it and perhaps you will have a go at making one.
Please pop a comment in if you have a minute and be in with a chance of grabbing the blog candy!
Thankyou for popping in,
Bye for now
