Hello crafters! Welcome to Week 20 of our AWH Heart of Christmas blog hop.
This week I’m using a stunning new product, the limited release Ever Eden Cotton Paper. This soft, delicate tissue-like paper offers a unique way to add dimension and visual interest to any paper project, can be used to wrap gifts, or it can be die cut, ripped, wrinkled or folded.
And it’s also the perfect thickness to create your own Christmas crackers!
The Ever Eden Cotton Paper comes in two colours: Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen. For my Evening Evergreen Christmas Crackers I tied each end with the Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon and for the Soft Succulent Christmas Crackers I used the Evening Evergreen Open Weave Ribbon.
These crackers are super easy to make. You can use the cardboard roll from wrapping paper, loo rolls or make your own inner tube from Crumb Cake or Basic White card stock. Each cracker is wrapped with half a sheet of Ever Eden Cotton Paper, attached to the inner tube with Tear and Tape.
Don’t forget to fill your cracker with a snap, a sweet, a joke or a treat before tying the ends with the ribbon. If you forget, you can gently untie one end and insert these things later.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Rachel Woollard. I can’t wait to see what she shares with us today!

Hello crafters! This week I’ve made a Christmas Bauble card using the two stamp sets from the Painted Christmas Suite Collection: Christmas Season (a stamp set with images) and Christmas to Remember (a sentiment stamp set).
To create the bauble shape I used the largest of the layering circle dies as a guide to draw a pencil circle outline to stamp within.
To “hang” my bauble onto the card I’ve made a hanging loop and a bow of the Real Red Sheer Ribbon. I’ve cut the ribbon ties in half to add extra interest to my card.
The inside has been stamped to match the font of the card, with another lovely sentiment from the Christmas to Remember stamp set.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Sharon Davern. I can’t wait to see what Sharon shares with us today!
