Christmas Cracker

I am a quest designer on THE GAME this month. The Challenge this week is to create a Christmas Cracker. Please check the site for challenge rules.

To create my cracker, I wrapped a toilet paper roll with red burlap and tied the ends with some red and white eyelash yarn. I then tied on some greenery and a snowflake button and little golden bell. The image is from Gecko Galz. This beautiful vintage woman in all her winter finery is from the Chic Christmas sheet.

I hope you have been inspired to create your own cracker and submit a photo to the challenge. Make sure you put something wonderful inside so you can then gift your cracker. This one is filled with chocolate covered cherries, yum!

I am entering this Christmas cracker in the following challenges:

Pile it On - #49 embellishments
Pause Dream Enjoy - #50 snow
The Squirrel & Fox - #33 Christmas
Simon Says Stamp & Show - gift giving
Kaboodle Doodles - #150 Christmas
