I don't know how to get the snap part other than buying them. Alteredmommy was so fantastic and sent me some when I couldn't find any here. Grin

Wonderful!  I'd never heard of such a fun thing!




What's the best way to carve wood?

Those crowns are so cute! And about the "cracker" tradition...
Once, when I was like 14, I went to Party Barn and saw a package of those crackers... and I didn't think twice about it because I thought that they were wrapped packages of actual crackers...I didn't figure out what they were until I read Harry Potter and it mentioned them...
I'm so ignorant!!! rofl xD
I want to go back and get them now though....

Very cool idea! I'm completely stealing it!!  Wink I have four ten-year-old boys in my family who are now going to freak on Christmas! I had already bought them a bag of those champagne poppers that shoot confetti to go on their giftbags, but I think I'm going to alter that into the 'cracking' noise.

I'm always thinking one step ahead. Like a carpenter that makes stairs.

I'd love to see your boys crowns when you make them! That would have been a really good joke to put into that cracker since I made the crown buggy! It's fun to customise the crowns with fabric to match the person.

sweet georgia brown this is great!

 i'm going to make some for my whole family! what a fantastic idea. and the dollar tree just opened today in my town! I'll get my silly trinkets there! I'm going to google cracker... well crackers i guess. I'll pass along any info i find.

as for the jokes, well, so far, i like them all. i've got one, that's 100% inappropriate for kids, but funny none the less: What did the bra say to the hat at the end of the party?

You go on ahead, i'll stay here and give these two a lift.

Thank you!

I can't help with the snap part, but if anyone wants a step-by-step on making the paper crackers bit just let me know! I have several more to make so pictures will be easy peasy Smiley

I'd offer for the crowns, but I never know what I'd doing and just seem to wing-it each time! Cheesy
