Stampin' Up! - you little cracker (a quick & simple project)!

Hello, our first project this week is something a little different; not a card but a cracker made with the Envelope Punch Board (EPB for short)!

The crackers were a table gift for the attendees at my Christmas Project day last weekend - everyone loved them and asked if they could make them too!

I have been making these little crackers for a few years now - you can make them is many different sizes and you can fit lots of exciting things in them.

They make lovely table gifts/place settings etc and are very quick to make.

I was joined today by two new ladies who did a great job with their crackers - well done Val and Lesley!

If you visit Pinterest and search for Envelope Punch Board you will be amazed at all the things you can make with this board - be warned you could be missing for quite some time!  If you follow this link you will find the tutorial that I used.

We used some of the stunning Speciality Designer Series Paper (Year of Cheer) that contains lots of lovely metallic foiled colours.

After making and assembling the crackers we made a little label and added some die cuts to decorate.  The label is blank so that you can write the recipients name on it!

For quite a small item the EPB certainly packs a punch (sorry)!!

If you haven't got an EPB it would make a fantastic Christmas present for any crafter - just saying!!  (There is a link at the end of this post that will take you to the details of my Christmas Gift Voucher service).

I have one further Coffee & Cards session available this week on Thursday, if you would like to join me to make this and another project, you can find the details here.
