These crackers were made using the Tonic studios cracker die - I just trimmed off the tabs at one edge and cut off the last section of the other edge, then scored the centre of each alternate 'diamond' cut out. Then I used a border punch to decorate the ends and a strip of paper to go around the centre. I folded all the scored lines then used the red very sticky double sided tape to join it together and tied it at each end with contrasting ribbon. The holly was made using the Seasons Greetings die that came with the cracker one. I will enter them into this weeks Allsorts challenge - 'Make a Gift.'
