Christmas crackers/GIFT crackers have a long history that dates back to the 1840’s.
Typically the gift cracker is filled with goodies and given as a present, and two people—with arms crossed--pull them apart like a wishbone. The person holding the largest portion keeps the items inside. The original crackers were stuffed with bonbons or candies and would make a cracking sound similar to a cap gun when pulled apart. Hence the name Christmas Crackers.
Christmas crackers were a part of Christmas celebrations primarily in the UK, Ireland and Commonwealth countries such as Australia, Canada, New Zealand and South Africa. These beautiful boxes have become popular year round for various occasions. Weddings, Birthdays, Holiday Celebrations, etc. Excellent for gift presentations of small items. Great for table placement cards for any event.
While a Simply D Rave cracker design cannot include the popping strips, they do add a nostalgic treat to gatherings with family and friends. They are a wonderful way to gift small items, and they are very attractive assembled.
These are a fun gift giving idea, and they are simple to make. _____________________________ You will need: Cardstock Printer Scissors Ribbon and Embellishments Ruler or straight edge Adhesive Imagination _____________________________ THE RIBBON AND BOWS ON THE IMAGES ARE FOR DEMONSTRATION PURPOSES ONLY.
