Christmas Crackers | Bella Blvd | Let Us Adore Him Collection

Wednesday 15 December 2021

Hey everyone! I have something a little different to share today…some DIY Christmas Crackers! I’m using the Let Us Adore Him collection by Bella Blvd.

I used a Silhouette cut file to cut three crackers from three different papers from the Let Us Adore him collection. I chose fairly plain prints in red, green and blue. I also cut the initials of my three children from these same papers.

I assembled the crackers and tied ribbon around the ends. I then set about embellishing each one.

For the blue cracker I added a red circle sticker layered with a white circle and the added the M initial. I layered this with some Christmas trees from the Let Us Adore Him ephemera and ‘this Christmas’ banner. I also added some little musical note circles, a puffy heart and some enamel dots.

For the green cracker I created a circle for the T initial using a red sticker and a white circle. I positioned this to the right of the cracker and layered it with some blue flowers, a blue present. I also added musical note circles to this cracker, together with some puffy flowers and enamel dots.

For the red cracker, I punched a white circle to hold the S initial and I positioned this centrally on the cracker. I added a tree ephemera, two flowers and two presents. I also added heart stickers, flower ephemera and some puffy stickers: holly leaves and trees. I also added enamel dots.

Finally I splattered all three crackers with white acrylic paint. I will fill these with chocolates and put the on the table on Christmas Day – how fun and the children will love them!

Thank you so much for joining me today and happy scrapping
