Pop up Cracker Favors

Another Gift Idea

The holiday shopping and events have taken me away from the blog for the last week, but I have still been crafting.  Like a Chirstmas Elf, I have been making gifts for school secretaries, teachers (you saw those in a previous blog post), and crafting friends.  In the past I have made paper trees, Swedish Stars, decorated frames, and more. 
 This year, I opted for more of a New Year's theme to my little favor. 
I found inspiration from a project I had seen years ago and wanted to tweek and make it my own.  The one I had seen held a group of post cards.  I wanted to make mine smaller and more of a "favor" size.  This is 2" x 2" plus the cracker ends (roughly 3' x 2").  So sweet and fun.  I think they would even add a festive feel to the table as name cards.
 Pull the sides and the cracker splits open to reveil a holiday greeting.
 Papertrey Ink provided the stamps for the cracker pieces.  The patterned paper is Authentique.  The cardstock and inks are Stampin' Up.  I added a little baker's twine to the cracker ends to bring it to life, but don't know the brand.
Hope these bring a little pop to everyone's lives!
