Holiday Crackers

A short posting:
This is the easier party treat I've ever made............it's a SVG cut file from SVGcuts.com and is part of the Gingerbread Chalet Village Collection using the SCAL (Sure Cuts a Lot computer program). It sure beats cutting each and every one of those triangles to make this project...............(urgh...........and I used to do that, too). The finished size for this treat is 6 x 1-1/2". It was a snap to make. Some of the treats can be three chocolate kisses, folded up currency, or small charms. They can also be embellished with so many choices to even further glam it up.

I made two of each pattern paper for now:

Here's what the computer screen looks like......no dies......just cut. I adjusted the original cracker size so it will fir four on a 12x12 page.........nothing like using every inch of the paper.......ahhhhhh.

Supplies used: AC Christmas paper, 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, Sticky Tape........and that"s it!!!!

Yay....is this the easiest or what?

Dear Patti, I follow your creations for a few weeks, and am glad I found your site. I visited the link you gave for cvg cuts, and I fell in love with the gingerbread houses (I planned to do them myself, but they look really cute), but don't have a machine. Do you know where I could find simpler templates for just scissors (and courage ?) Thank you so uch if you can help me.

I have the die out of sheer lazyness (didn't want to cut out triangles myself) so I can totally appreciate this! Love it Patti! Hugs~
