My First Homemade Cracker

Good morning everyone, do you remember the Christmas card i made for my new Grandson? Well here's something else for him, his 1st Christmas cracker and my First attempt to create one. The stamp was a freebie from a mag' stamped onto a Marianne Design frame die cut and i coloured with Distress Inks and added some glitter. I punched a snowflake edge to go around the centre of the cracker and even used the waste bits to decorate the ends. I finished it off with some organza ribbon and i wrote out the sentiment on the back.
