Luxury DIY Christmas crackers

Craft essentials

1 Cut patterned card to 13cm x 18cm and score across at 2cm intervals to create six sections plus a 1cm wide tab.

2 Score down the card at 3cm, 4cm and 5cm from either end. Fold along all score lines, concertina folding the lines that form the ends of the cracker.

3 Keep the ends folded at the 4cm score lines and snip ‘v’ shapes from the fold to the next scoreline. Open the folds to reveal a series of diamond shapes on either side of the cracker.

4 Roll up the card and glue the 1cm wide tab to the opposing end creating a hexagonal tube. Push the ends of the tube towards each other, allowing the folds and diamonds to contract inwards.

5 Cut a length of baker’s twine and wrap around one of the inward folds twice before tying securely into a neat bow. Fill your cracker with treats before tying the other end in the same way.
