Christmas cracker templates

Christmas cracker templates
By Kate on December 10, 2011 I can’t imagine tucking into a Christmas dinner without pulling a cracker first. I love the naff hats, the cringe-worthy jokes (and just the tradition of it all). Crackers are so easy to make…and if you don’t fancy making some for the table you can make some miniature ones to hang in the tree. They also make really cool gift boxes. I’ve put some templates together if you wanna try. Here’s how: 1) Download the pdf and print onto thin card. 3) Score along all the dotted lines. 5) Fold along all the vertical lines. 6) Fold along horizontal lines as shown. 7) Bring ends together and join using a glue stick or double sided tape. 8) Tie one end with a length of cotton/ribbon/string* 9) Wrap a gift/sweets/hat/joke/confetti* in some tissue paper 10) Pop inside cracker and tie the other end with cotton/ribbon/string* * delete where appropriate!! Job done!! Hope all your Christmas or Hanukkah crafts/preparations/plans are coming along a treat.

Stellated dodecahedrons! Hello there. I seem to be stuck in a geometric-paper-model rut at the moment! I promise this will be the last one for a while! (I have just white-washed a lot of the walls in our home so I have been looking to make some colourful objects to hang up…these are just the job). Making stellated dodecahedrons is fairly time consuming and requires a light-touch and a fair bit of patience…so teenagers/adults only! 3D paper diamonds Hello there. Hope you all had a great Easter!

Cute Toilet Paper Roll Santa We do love those paper rolls… and have long stopped throwing them away. Sometimes we start making one thing but get another… just as easy and amusing. Those little toys will surely be part of the Christmas bazaar at little Krokotak’s school. . You need a toilet paper roll, some red paper, some glue, a pair of scissors and a black marker.

DIY Furniture: An Awesomely Inspiring How-To Book I don't buy a lot of how-to books these days. It's not that I dislike reading, but rather I tend to go to web for most of my instructional needs.

It's now at the top of my reading list; I plan on ordering a copy ASAP. The book features 30 designs by top-notch designers that range from interior seating and storage to garden furniture.

8-bit popup cards Hello! Remember that pixel heart card I made a while back? Well it has been one of my most popular tutorials to date so I thought I would add another few designs to the collection. Meet ‘space-invader popup’ and ‘skull popup': Like the heart card, they are really minimal (which I just love) and easy to make once you have got the hang of it.
