Make your own doll sized Christmas Crackers

One of my favorite holiday memories growing up was having Christmas Crackers, the prize inside, the silly joke and of course the hat.
I thought it would be fun to make a doll size one (less the popper I can not find them) they are easy to make and fun to put a small item you have made, like the bracelet I used. Here is how I made mine.
you need a toilet paper tube. Cut it open and make it smaller by half to make it doll size, then tape it in place.

here is what I put in mine.
Next I rolled it all up and put it in the tube.
After that I cut a piece of scrap book paper though you could use wrapping paper and cut it to 6 inches X 4 inches. Then rolled it around the tube and taped it in place.
 I love how this turned out. I hope you did too!

Tomorrow's post will show you how to make the hats.
As with all my posts I would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment here or email me at
