  • Vintage Christmas Crackers
    You’ll need
      • Christmas cards
      • Scoring board
      • Double-sided tape
      • Scissors
      • Twine
      • Cracker gift
      1. Take an A5 card front and score 4cm, 5cm and 6cm in from both short edges. Fold on the 5cm lines and cut a series of ‘V’ shaped darts on this crease, as far as the other lines. Open out the folds and roll the card into a tube, securing with double-sided tape.

      2. Tightly tie twine around the darted areas to pull the folds in, making a traditional cracker shape. Decorate the front of the cracker with a suitable picture cut from an old card. Don’t forget to fill your crackers before tying up the ends.
