Christmas paper Crackers including tutorial!!

I LOVE making these Christmas Crackers.  I used multiple packs of Warmth and Cheer 6X6 Decorative Series Paper (DSP).
I watched this Helen Griffin's video
First, you score at 1-3/8", 2-3/4", 4-1/8" and 5-1/2". 
 Then, you turn it 90 degrees and score at 1", 1-1/2", 2", 4", 4-1/2" and 5"
 Your paper should look like this:
 Fold into a "C"
 Fold over the first 1/2" and using the Envelope Punch Board and punch at 1-1/2" and at 4-1/2".  Repeat BOTH the fold and the punches on EVERY score line.
 Even punch the edge of the paper, see the bottom? When you are done, your paper should look like this:
 Turn to the side and fold both sides like "W's" so your paper will now look like this:
 Place some Tear and Tape on the 1/2" edge.
 Peel off the paper and lay it down on the table,
 And place the other side on top of the adhesive you just exposed.
 You should now have a box like this:
I put 2 Ferrero Rocher in the box with the gold showing on the outside.  Then, use any 2 pieces of ribbon or string to tie over the holes so it looks like this:

As an added bonus, I decorated the bag that held a special order of 15 Christmas Crackers to look like Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer.
I even made a Mardi Gras themed cracker for my friend Leanne.  Here they are!

Thank you for checking in!
