Do you find Christmas Crackers expensive and always have tiny gifts that you will never use?
Why not make your own Cracker Boxes? These stand nicely on your festive table and can be filled with your own personal gift, lottery/scratch card, paper hat and fun fact.
I used to buy Cracker Boxes and fill them but now with my Envelope Punch board I can make my own.
By using one sheet of 12″ x 12″ cardstock you can make one box and decorate it too!
They are sturdy enough to be used year after year so once you have made and decorated them you can use and keep them for years to come.
By adding a name tag they can also be used as place settings.
I fill mine with a gift which is personal to the recipient (nail polish, lip stick, hand cream, socks, chocolates)
I also put in a lottery ticket or scratch card for a bit of extra fun.
Off the internet I also print off some fun facts that are great as a talking point around the table.
A christmas paper hat and a small chocolate finishes off the cracker box and makes it a much more exciting table decoration.
You can make these of different sizes so they can be used as gift boxes all year round.
