Please come visit the blog everyday for the next week to see their gorgeous crackers. Make sure you read the whole post each day for instructions to hop to one DT blog each day. On the individual blogs there will be a secret word or words for you to note down.  Once the week is over you will have a secret sentence to post on our Facebook Page under a post that will happen on Friday the 8th of November. Please post the sentence by 10am on Monday the 11th November 2013 to be in a random draw  for a great set of wood mounted Memory Box Stamps.  We will also be announcing a competition after the blog hop too.

Today Tracey shares a lovely cracker that looks very cheerful with its bright colours

 Hi, so today I am showing you my version of the Christmas crackers I make. This design is really the easiest I have come across on the web... so here goes...
You will need a A4 paper and score at 2", 3" & 4". Rotate and repeat other side

Now score lengthways from one side 1 1/4,   2 1/2,   3 3/4,   5,   6 1/4,   7 1/2.

That's all the scoring done. Now fold down second score line from end.

Cut out triangles using the score lines to guide you. Do not connect the triangles you cut, there must be a small gap.

Open up and crease scored lines... tape edges down then decorate.

So hopefully you have found this easy. Now jump over to my blog at StampingSeasons to find the secret word for the blog hop face book contest... Good luck!

  1. Hello Tracy
    Beautiful boxed shaped cracker, one cannot go wrong with G45 in my book, the turquoise with the Red trim looks fabulous.
