Going crackers

As promised here are the instructions for making the cracker.

Noel Christmas Cracker.

Step by Step


1. Take a piece of 12” by 12” white cardstock. Score @ 2 ½”, 5”, 7 ½” and 10” then cut off at 11 ¼”. 
2. Turn the card so that the score lines are horizontal and score from the left hand side @1 ½”, 2 ¼” and 3”. Turn the card and repeat this from the other end.
3. Fold all the horizontal lines and crease well.
4. Fold the vertical line as follows….mountain, valley, mountain. Repeat on both ends.
5. Cut a piece of white 12” cardstock in to four 6” squares. Run through an embossing machine with a dotty, or any other design of embossing folder.
6. From these cut 4 x strips 5 5/8” wide by 2 1/8” deep. Then cut 8 x strips of 1 1/8” wide by 2 1/8” deep.
7. Cut 4 strips of silver mirri card 5 ¾” by 2 ¼” and glue the white dotty on to these. Then cut 8 strips of mirri 2 ¼” deep by 1 ¼” wide. Glue the smaller dotty white strips on to these.
8. Punch or die cut 2 silver snowflakes of your choice.
9. Punch or die cut 7 large and one smaller flower from white cardstock.
10. Punch 2 x 2” circles from the remaining white dotty card and 2 x 1 ½” silver circles.
11. Using the scanncut or and alphabet die set cut out NOEL twice. Once from white and once from silver.
12. Cut a 1 ¼” wide strip of silver mirri card and punch both ends with the circle punch.
13. Cut a tag from white card and a slightly larger one from silver mirri.

Once you have completed these steps you will have something which looks like this (each line is a score line.) fold over and decorate to suit your taste. :)
