A tradition since the 1840s, Christmas crackers are a treat for everyone at the holidays. A joke, a crown, and a small toy can delight even the most jaded adult as they pull the cracker and surprises pop out. In this class, you’ll begin by covering cardboard tubes with crepe and choosing Victorian and Dresden paper trim to decorate the bonbons. Then you’ll cut and decorate crowns out of the fine crepe. Some treats to include inside the tube will be provided, along with the popping strip, although you are welcome to bring a few trinkets you may want to include. Write a little note on a card you create in class to personalize the bonbons. Lynn will also bring a surprise you may choose to include in your cracker. You’ll leave Castle in the Air with at least eight party favors and materials to make a few more.
