I have been taking part in Tracy's from Mad About Bags Christmas Cracker swap for the past three years and it is a lovely one to do as you are limited to what can be fitted inside a kitchen roll, which gives you a real challenge. This year, I was paired up with the lovely Alison from fatdormouse and View from the Teapot. We emailed and I discovered that she didn't sew, so she asked whether I could wrap the cracker in paper, for paper crafting, rather than material. Of course I could! We found out about likes and dislikes and then got on with the making and buying. We swapped our crackers and here's what I received:
HUGE thank you to Alison for her generosity
I found this rather gorgeous hand made paper so wrapped that around the kitchen roll before wrapping in paper and adding ribbon. It was a lovely swap, so thank you to Tracy for organising and many thanks to Alison.
