The Green Christmas Guide # 9 - Make your own Crackers

The crackers above are made from toilet roll tubes and magazines and are available from www.greenribbon.org.uk. I am going to make my own like this and would of done earlier if all the toilet roll tubes in this house weren't already pinched for other craft projects - this week they are the horns on a viking helmet {two tubes stuck onto a builders hat with masking tape!} Anyway - doing this means you can make very personal crackers, with comics or homemade paper and fill them with gifts of your choice instead!

  2. you can buy the 'snaps' to go in them - but we prefer to just leave them out, having little ones I usually perforate the paper to make the rip easier, but it is always so noisy with excitement we don't need a snap at all!
