  1. Just got my paper order yesterday and cannot wait to make these this weekend. Thank you Lizzy. Kelly, thanks to you and your staff for making Black Friday such a wonderful event. Received my "Love" package yesterday and cannot wait to create this weekend. The new stamp and die are amazing! Sealed with a kiss/love/hug all the above. 🙂 Best to all of you!

  2. How cool is this!! I love these cracker snaps and will definitely be ordering this die set as I can see it being used for so many occasions. The tutorial is fabulous and I love the details that were added to create that incredibly gorgeous flower!!!

  3. Homemade Christmas crackers!! What wonderful idea. My family will love these. We have been celebrating with crackers since my girls were little. Can't wait to try these little gems for next year.

  4. Such pretty Christmas crackers, complete with the 'snap' effect! Your how-to video is engaging; such fun to watch the magic unfold! Thank you for taking part in, and sponsoring, Taheerah's wonderful Extravaganza! LF products and designers are amazing!

  5. I had no idea what Christmas Crackers were until we went to Christmas dinner at a British friend's house – they are so much fun! I'd love to be able to make some and that die is perfect for that, thanks for the tutorial.

  6. I really love this idea, and I really, really love the Lawn Fawn plaid papers. They are the perfect colors and scale and I have wanted them so long. Of course, If I won something,….. Thanks for the ideas, the cool product and for all the prizes you offer!

  7. What a great idea! No more goofy prizes in the crackers! Well, only if you want them. Love that you included the popper source. It's not a cracker without the "crack!"

  8. I love these crackers and the paper is just lovely. I love making crackers for my Christmas table but haven't for a few years. Thanks for the reminder of just how cute these look. Have a lovely day. Cheers Donna Z 🙂

  9. The Crackers remind of my Mother and her Scottish Christmas. It included the crackers, shortbread and a Scottish dumpling with charms or coins buried in it. Sure wish I could cook like she did. . thanks for sharing such a wonderful project

  10. I love everything about these! We've always had Christmas crackers at our holiday gatherings. It's fun to read the jokes, wear the hats and see what surprise is inside. I love the idea of creating your own. The plaid paper looks amazing!

  11. I just love your pattered paper that just makes your flower accent shine bright. I have never heard of cracker snaps before so had to look them up. What a fun addition to your holiday meal!!!!!

  12. These are so cute and would be fun to make. Hope I have time to make some this year. They would be great little gift boxes for my monthly breakfast group.

  13. What a great idea. Crackers were always a favorite at Christmas dinner. I like that you can fill it with your own items and ideas too. Merry Christmas and thanks for the idea.
