New Year’s Crackers: Make Your Own

Most holiday crackers sold today are stuffed with cheap toys and toss away prizes. A decent set can set you back  over $50 for 8 crackers, and the gifts inside are still throw-away trinkets. Originally sold just before Christmas, party crackers have become popular for many occasions.
You can make your own crackers in a snap, and filling them with personalized messages, thoughtful gifts, and festive paper hats is easy.
Parts List:
  • Festive paper
  • Toilet paper tubes (1 per cracker)
  • Cracker snaps (1 per cracker)
  • Ribbon
  • Double Sided Tape, glue gun, or glue stick
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Tissue paper (for paper hats)
  • Joke, quote, or riddle
  • Present or prize
