I made these quickly on Christmas Eve, took about an hour in total. The template is from Crafts U Print which I printed onto some Neenah card. The cutting out is a pain but was easy enough (even easier with a new blade in your craft knife - I think changing my blade is one thing I will do on a regular basis next year!). I used a bottle of glue to help keep the shape of the cracker whilst I stuck it together with some strong double sided tape. I filled them with some lottery scratchcards and chocolates and tied them with raffia ribbon.
I didn't have any snaps but they're fine without.
The scratch cards by the way netted us £120 on Christmas Day- result!
The card is a stepper card and I used an embossing folder on some core'dinations Black Magic card which I sanded back to reveal the orange beneath the black. The ghosts were stickers that I attached using some Papermania mini springs.
The gift bag was a plain kraft one from Hobbycraft that I attached Halloween paper and a topper from the Hunkydory Little Horrors kit. I filled the bag with some sweets before sending it off to some friends children (although I was tempted to keep it!). It's the first gift bag I've made like this and I was pleased with the result.
