Helen Griffin UK Christmas in July Day 1 Mini Cracker

Christmas in July 2019 Day 1 | Mini Christmas Crackers for Treats

Welcome to the first Christmas series of this year! And yet again, it’s in the middle of a heatwave! It’s Christmas in July 2019!

We’re starting with an easy project that I hope you will enjoy making. These little crackers hold 2 Ferrero Rochers and will look lovely at a table place setting or scattered amongst the Christmas tree branches. These would also be perfect for an advent calendar idea. With the cutting guide there is a bonus box to make to fit your crackers inside – it has an acetate lid, so the pretty crackers are visible. The card toppers from the paper pad are perfect for finishing the box.

I’ve used the lovely new Christmas paper pad from Crafter’s Companion called Poinsettia Perfection from the Nature’s Garden collection. International shipping is available, please see below for free shipping thresholds.

Below you’ll find the video tutorial, supplies list, and cutting guide for the crackers and a box to out them in 🙂
