How to make

Step-1

Take one sheet of crepe paper, and secure it centrally to the cracker core along the long edge using double sided tape.

Step-2

Roll the core along the crepe paper so that it wraps around evenly.

Step-3

Secure the end of the crepe paper using double sided tape.

Step-4

Loop twine or ribbon around one end of the cracker core and secure in place with a bow.

Step-5

Leave between six centimetres and eight centimetres of crepe paper at the end and cut off any excess paper using pinking shears or scissors.

Step-6

Add your filling so that it sits inside the cracker core, and then repeat step four to secure the open end.

Step-7

Decorate the cracker using ribbons and embellishment toppers.
