I was thinking about wrapping a gift this week and was struggling to come up with a neat idea. The gift is long and thin and I find that wrapping something that shape can look a little sad. So I figured that a Christmas cracker shape would work. I was given a gift in a cracker shaped box many years ago and vaguely remembered the shape of the box so I had to try and recreate it. The cracker shown here is the result of the template I made. Decorated with some stickers and sparkles, I think it looks OK.
A few other crafts that I have been playing with this week - some needle felted toadstools, inchies, digitally altered photos made into magnets, a notebook and a Christmas card.
