Bah Humbug - Guest Designer week 3 - Christmas Crackers -

 Time seems to be passing by so quickly - its Bah Humbug Day, week 3 of my guest design spot, this weeks theme is a real cracker ..
I have very much been enjoying my guest spot. I really cannot thank the ladies at Bah Humbug for asking me, it has been such a joy making the projects. I will be continuing with the guest designer spot for the month of February ..Am so glad I can be of help. Thinking both of Max and Irene {Hugs}
Here are my offerings for this weeks fabulous challenge - Christmas Crackers - I have made a card, using a Elzybells RS image. I have also made a Christmas Cracker, one that does not need a 'snap' I made it following this fabulous tutorial for a Christmas Cracker
I guess the 'cracker' type gift box can be used any time of the yr. You just need to adopt the style/theme to the occasion .... It really is an incredibly easy make. You could just have one opening at the top and make it a 'milk' carton type gift box too. You could also add an acetate window, Lots of possibilites IMHO.. Compared to the 'tutorial' pics mine does look somwhat different on the 'ends' I think maybe the 'added' cardstock was too heavy, but overall I am pleased with results.
