Create your own Christmas Crackers! Free file included!

Last year I decided that I had had enough of cheap and wasteful Christmas crackers. So instead of buying another box of overpriced crackers, I set out to make my own. After a number of trial and error files, I finally came up with a template that worked for me. I had a lot of fun weeding many many many little additions (let's face it... I made FAR too many in my initial tests last year - think an entire 12x12 of christmas trees, candy canes, bells and so many more...), and even more fun revealing them to the entire family!


Needless to say - my Christmas lunch table was the highlight of the season!

Of course the aftermath of the lunch was just as fun to witness, but the crackers were a huge hit with the entire family. The jokes were new and fresh, and the gifts were useful for once! Many laughs were had, and it was an extremely memorable Christmas to say the least.



In order to share the Christmas spirit, I thought that this year I would share not only the Christmas cracker template, but the additions, and the jokes as well!


You can to download the files below, watch my YouTube video showing how I put it all together, which is available below, as well as some additional information to help you along your way!
