free printable: xmas crackers

oh em gee - you guys, it's almost xmas! the countdown is on, and time is running out! it's time to get those chrissy gifts sorted - stat! anyone who know's me, know's that i'm an absolute sucker for cute packaging. and while we all know that it's what's on the inside that counts, i think we'd all be lying if we didn't admit that just sometimes, we judge things by their appearance. so if you're looking for the perfect xmas packaging for your little gifts and treats - look no futher... i got you guys!

now while these crackers do require a little assembly, i swear that they are also the easiest thing in the world to put together - heck if you've got kids, put them to work for you and go put your feet up! (okay, so that's not exactly the best idea because there's a fair bit of handling scissors and craft knives - but hey, if it's a risk you're willing to take...) i love these crackers for packaging gifts, but you could absolutely use them on your christmas table too - just add some of those fancy cracker things that 'crack' when you crack the cracker and you're cracking! (yep, that just happened)

these crackers were designed to hold small gifts and sweet treats - but can be used in so many ways. for a gorgeous and simple gift idea include the recipients fave lollies or some mini cookies, then add a handwritten love note and loads of confetti! for the perfect sized confectionery gift to include in your crackers, mrtimothyjames loves happy lab's - happy beans test tubes (also available at target australia).

if you feel like sharing what you pop inside these crackers how you style them, share them with me on social media use the hashtag #mrtimothyjames

happy gifting love timothy xx
