Felt Christmas Crackers Tutorial

I thought it was about time i did another tutorial for you sweet peeps.
Ive been itching to make these for a while now so when i got the new Designer felt in my little mits i couldn't wait to get started. These are super quick and easy to make and will look fantastic on your tree too
 I hope you like them!
First of all you will need to print off the Christmas Crackers template below and cut it out. The shaded black diamonds need to be cut out completely. Click on the template to enlarge it to full size , then right click and print.

Draw round your cracker template onto the back of the Designer Felt
Cut it out

Cutting the diamonds out can be tricky so do it like this, Fold the felt over matching up the corners of the opposite diamonds.
Cut into the diamond. Do this same technique for each diamond

It should then look a little bit like this : )

Roll up your Cracker over lapping the end panels as shown in the photo below. Loosely tie each end with Paper String and a bow.

Taaaa daaaaa....your all done!

I really hope you enjoyed this Christmas Cracker tutorial
(it bloomin well took an age to get the pattern just right) lol

Before you tie both ends, why not fill each one with chocolates and sweet treats!

Have fun, and if you make them send me some pics please, i love seeing what you make with
