Crackers!! (and a freebie)

I'm afraid that I'm well and truly in Christmas mode today!  StampFairy are sponsoring Crafty Creations today, and the theme is to make 2 of something.  I've made a couple of Chrimbo crackers, one blue and one in pink!!

I made the base cracker from a 12" square scrapbook page, and I've included the template I created below in case any of you want to give it a try too if you like my versions.





The images and sentiments are raised up on foam pads.  Here's a close up of each cracker:





Freebie:
As promised above, here is my cracker template freebie that I've used above.  You're free to download it if you like it; click on the image for a larger version, then right click and 'save picture as' to save to your own computer. 

My conditions are as follows:
  1. Please become a follower, then you will see more freebies as they are posted,
  2. Please leave a comment on this post to let me know you've downloaded it, and
  3. Please don't share my freebies directly with other people (so please don't post them to Pinterest), but instead please direct people over here to collect it themselves.
  4. Please give me credit when you use them and post your finished creations on your blog.
I also adore seeing your creations using my freebies, so I'd really love you to send me an email with links to your creations so I can pop over for a peek!

Sue said...

Thank you so much for the freebie cracker design. I just found your site through Scor Pal contest and just became a follower of yours. PS-did you hand cut the diamonds cut outs on the cracker box? or do you have an SVG file for it?

Annette said...

Hi Sue, Unfortunately I can't reply directly as your blogger profile is not public and so I can't see your email address, but I don't have SVG files for my templates (I wouldn't know where to start with that). They're all cut by hand (even when I made 18 crackers for my whole department in Xmas 2014!!). They're fairly quick to cut out though from a 12x12 paper stack. Hope that helps, and I'd love to see what you create using the template. :0)
Hugs
Annette
