Stix2 Create your own cracker - part2

Good morning, so here it is, part 2 of 3 of my create your own crackers by Stix2. If you havent seen my first part then please go back and have a look. i have included some hint and tips on the post blog post that will hopefully help you along the way. just to reiterate, i had so much fun create these crackers. The joy of making your own is that you can include your own gifts, gone are the days of the tacky gifts you used to get in side and never use. Like i said in the previous post you can decorate your own crackers as much or as less as you want. Want to keep them simple, no bother, but if you want to go all dramatic then that too is no bother. Have fun, try to incorperate many of your crafty stash and even tools. Use your Embossing folders, dies, punches, toppers the list is endless. you will see another couple of options below of some of my tools and stash iv used. Below is another 2 different cracker styles iv made. the products i have used are underneath each of the photos;

Additional products used.

TIP
There is no embossing folder on the market that is big enough to emboss the whole of your cracker, even your A4 folders are to small. Its just the case of having a play with your choosing folder and position it till your happy with the positioning  With mine above, i have positioned my A4 folder in the center of the cracker. As you can see it leaves both end of your cracker plain. To me i like this look, it doesn't look out of place, but you could use ribbons or punches to disguise the ends.
