Re-usable / recyclable Christmas crackers complete with matching Christmas crowns, personalised quotes and mini gifts.

My littlens wanted crackers on the table again this year, and I immediately did the metaphoric eye roll inside my head. Another year of crap jokes, lame 'inspirations' and rubbish plastic gifts.

This led me to my usual thought of "I can do better" which really should be followed by that classic meme "why buy it for $2 when I can make it for $90". That was pretty much exactly this situation. Except I can flat pack them and use them again next year - making them worthwhile and cost effective in the end, right?

Regardless, I'm happy with the outcome and I've ticked one more thing off my 'to do list' which always pleases me. Merry Christmas!
