Betsy this one's for you!

WOW what a Fabulous day we have had at the Temuka Baptist Christmas Scrap and Craft. Day. The company was great, I love spending time with you all. We had lots of laughs, and completed some great projects. There were 8 make and takes, you could choose 4, the projects looked great. I tutored 2 make and takes. First project was the decoration, from the decoration in the box, that I did a few weeks ago. Then after tea we made Triangle Box Christmas Crackers. I had seen in a magazine a Hexagon Cracker, so I played around until I had got it cracked. In the photo is the Triangle Box and the Hexagon Cracker.

Old Olive Card Stock, I stamped the middle with Baroque Motifs Stamp Set, Real Red Grossgrain Ribbon.

Score parallel to 29.8cm side of the card at 1 1/4" , 2 1/2" , 3 3/4" , 5" , 6 1/4"  and 7 1/2"

  1. thanks Helen (again) I've been demoing the triangle cracker lately but will have a go at your big one as that looks fantastic - again truly inspirational (but better let someone else have the honours this week)

  2. That was a good day Helen with good company and lovely Tutors! Thanks for the measurements for the cracker in inches, I need them too as I cant always borrow your cutter!
