At Christmas time I just love making all sorts of treats. About 15 years ago I had some mini crackers that used to go on my tree every year, but eventually I had to agree they were too tatty and dog-eared so they went into the bin! Oh dear, I hear you say, so this year I decided to make some new ones. Each cracker is adorned with luxurious quality ribbon, gold embossed sentiment, dazzling diamond rhinestone embellishments and glittery stars.
I can’t wait to put them on my Christmas tree and can hardly contain my excitement!!! I just can’t stop making these, I love them.
So I decided that for the month of November there would be a prize draw where I will be giving away a box of six of these crackers (filled with goodies, which will also include the itty bitty accents punch set, so useful for so many projects) in a beautiful see through box tied up with lovely ribbon. Well, I hear you say, yes please!
All you have to do to enter this November giveaway is to spend a minimum of £50 (excluding postage) in my online shop during the month of November. If you spend £100 you will be entered twice. You can enter as many times during the month as you like. The draw results will be announced in my blog at the end of November and the lucky recipient will receive their prize at the beginning of December, well in time for Christmas.
In the meantime, if you would like to have a go at making these lovely mini crackers here is the video of how you could make them with the Stampin’ Up! products.
