Welcome to my Holiday ABC series! I am having so much fun going through the alphabet and sharing holiday ideas. My sister collects nutcrackers and she is also the one who introduced me to store bought “crackers” one year. Crackers have since become a holiday tradition. I will be celebrating Christmas at my sister’s this year with the rest of my family so I thought it would be fun to make some nut”crackers”.
I intended to just use the nutcracker pattern from the Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper; however, as I was making it I thought it would be fun to cut out the nutcrackers. (I always loved paper dolls as a kid!) I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits and the Layering Ovals Framelits to cut layers to adhere the nutcrackers. It was easy to fussy cut the nutcrackers with my Paper Snips.
These are quick & easy to make using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and the Envelope Punch Board. You can get 4 per sheet of DSP. I shared a photo tutorial how to make these HERE. These are great for so many occasions. I love to make these as table favors and everyone always enjoys them! You can fill these with candy (or nuts), lottery tickets, $, or small gifts. It’s always a fun surprise to open!
The Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper Pack has so many great patterns…I LOVE the plaid!!!!
