Stampin’ Up! UK Pullable Christmas Cracker ADVENT COUNTDOWN 23
Oooo, this was so not a planned project, but someone asked me to make a cracker, and while I love the ones that are out there on the internet, I wanted to make one that was different.
And while it was having this thought process, I pondered that while the crackers out there are beautiful to look at, there really wasn’t any way to get inside them without trashing the cracker itself.
And that made me a bit sad….
So, I then had a light bulb moment!
The perforating blade for the rotary addition to the Stampin’ Trimmer!
Oh, I was squeaking with excitement, and desperately wanted to tell someone, but I do like to keep things under wraps before sharing them publicly, and my poor husband just looked blankly at me, and sort of mumbled ‘umm, yeah, well done, I think….’ at me!
Bless his heart, he does try!
So anyway, this was a true one-take-wonder video. Well, all my videos are filmed in one take, but occasionally, when I forget how to pronounce my own name (it does happen!) I have to restart. But with only 2 samples made, one to show and one to ‘pull’, I couldn’t get it wrong.
And I didn’t!
So here you are, one 3 sided cracker, complete with ‘pull’ action included!
