Upscale your Christmas Crackers & add a bit of Luxury

Christmas Crackers Straight from the Box

Upscaled Luxury Christmas Crackers




This is a fun, Christmas project. If, like me, you want your Christmas Dinner Table to look opulently festive but don’t like the price the Luxury Christmas Crackers (which, after all, end up in the bin within hours of use), perhaps you’ll follow my project to Upscale your Christmas Crackers.


For this project you will need:
  • Inexpensive Christmas Crackers (mine cost £6.80 for a dozen)
  • Coordinating 25mm Double Satin Ribbon
  • Gold Mirri Card
  • Gold Pearlescent Paper
  • White Paper
  • Sheet of Double Sided Adhesive
  • Glitter
  • Rhinestones
  • Spellbinders Create-A-Flake Die Set (or similar)
  • Glue
Adhere one side of the double-sided adhesive sheet to the sheet of white paper, then cut and emboss a set of three Snowflakes (largest flake in gold mirri, medium flake in adhesive paper and smallest flake in gold pearlescent paper). Repeat sets for as many crackers as you have. 

Peel away the adhesive layer and cover the medium size flake in glitter. Layer up the three flakes, applying a small dot of wet glue between each layer.

Cut 2 x 65cm lengths of Double Satin Ribbon. Remove any existing ties from the crackers and then tie your own ribbon around the crackers and trim the ribbon ends.

Glue the snowflake topper to the centre of the cracker, top off with a rhinestone crystal and use more crystals to decorate each end of the cracker.

 If you really want to go uber-luxury, finish off the Snowflake topper with a Rhinestone Button (but as these button cost over £1 a piece, they push up the price per cracker quite a bit).

I hope you've enjoyed this fun festive Christmas, do let me know what you think and wishing all my blog readers a very Merry Christmas.
