How to make


Cut your chosen paper so that it’s three times the length and enough to cover the tube entirely.


Secure in the middle with tape then trim the ends so that it’s roughly three times the length of the tube.


Scrunch and twist one end and tie with twine or ribbon.


Insert your chosen gift into the other end then repeat the twisting and tying process.


Decoration Time: There are lots of different things you can use to decorate your crackers. On the below crackers I’ve used ribbons and twine to to add a splash of colour and then papercraft toppers.
