PARTY CRAFTS:






English Party Crackers:


Materials:
  • Brightly colored gift wrapping paper
  • Craft glue
  • Cracker snaps - or thin wooden sticks that will break easily (at craft store)
  • Glitter
  • Paper towel roll
  • Small gifts, candies, and good luck fortunes
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors


Instructions:

  1. Cut the wrapping paper into a small rectangle approximately 27cm x 40cm (11 in. x 16 in.)
  2. Slide the cracker snap through the paper towel roll. Make sure that it sticks out evenly from both ends.
  3. Put small gifts, candies and fortunes in the tube.
  4. Put a bead of glue down the length of the paper towel roll.
  5. Place the paper towel roll along the long edge of the wrapping paper. Center it so that even amounts of wrapper paper are on either side.
  6. Roll the wrapping paper around the towel roll and secure the open end of wrapping paper with a long bead of glue. Your cracker should be a long roll of wrapping paper with gifts, candy and fortunes inside.
  7. At this point you can further decorate your cracker with glue and glitter for a really sparkly effect.
  8. Finally, tie each end of the party cracker with colorful ribbon.
  9. You can "pull" or open these crackers traditionally between two party guests, or you can send them home with your party guests intact!
