Crackers are an old Christmas tradition mostly from the UK and South Africa. Crackers are made of cardboard wrapped in festive paper and twisted at the ends to look like a large piece of wrapped candy with a prize inside. Crackers are placed at each place setting at the Christmas Dinner. The cracker is pulled apart by two people causing the cracker to split and one person holding the prize.
I have included 2 different sizes of crackers. I make the crackers in the size I need for what I plan on putting in it.
For the more masculine cracker I put in 2 beef sticks, but I think I could of added 2 more.
For the more feminine cracker, I added hand cream.
For the 4-1/2" size
- 8-1/2 by 11" card stock
- With the 8-1/2" across the top score at 1", 1-1/2" and 2" turn 180 degrees and score again at 1", 1-1/2" and 2"
- With the 11" across the top score at 1-1/4", 2-1/2", 3-3/4" and 5" turn 180 degrees and score again at 1-1/4", 2-1/2", 3-3/4" and 5"
- With the 11" across the top cut the card stock at 5-1/2" to make 2 crackers
