What a Cracker...

Wednesday, December 9, 2009

Christmas is at our house again this year and I've decided that I'm going to make most of the table decorations. I've been looking around at Christmas bon bons (crackers) and they all seem to contain horrible party hats and plastic toys that get thrown away as soon as they are opened... not to mention the sheet of jokes we've all heard before. So last night I dragged out the packet of cracker inserts (the sticks that make them go 'bang') that I bought last year and sat down and made some bon bons using Imaginisce 'Polar Expressions' and filled them with scrumptious Lindt chocolates (my all time favourite). If you would like to create your own bon bons then take a look at the following link as it has a template that you can download (it's not the one I used but is very similar) ... http://www.groovychocolate.com/laydowns/…

From farm to you...
