For the last couple of years I've joined in with Tracy's (Mad About Bags) Christmas Cracker swap, and this year I was partnered with the lovely Ali (Ali Bee's Creations). The idea is we take an inner tube from a kitchen roll, and fill it with as much as we can, then cover it.
My cracker arrived yesterday, and I set too and opened it straight away. Ali had crocheted a lovely red cover for her cracker.
Having taken off the gorgeous bright red cover, it was then wrapped in gift wrap.
By this time I was getting impatient to get to the goodies inside -
still a bit more unwrapping, and there were all my lovely goodies in front of me.
I find it incredible how much you can get into a kitchen roll inner tube, Ali sent me a bar of chocolate (which sadly is no more!), a cute tree decoration, a tea-light candle shaped as a boot, a tub of Burt's Bees lemon butter cuticle cream, a tub of lip balm (which smells divine), a bath bomb, a brightly coloured emery board, a dear little tape measure, a pack of christmas paper chains and a bottle of nail varnish. Thank you so much for this lovely cracker, Ali, and thanks also to Tracy for organising this very popular swap.
I forgot to photograph the cracker that I sent to Ali, but she has now received and opened it, and you can see it here.
