The Holiday Candy Lane Cracker

1.Cut the paper 5 ½ x 6”
2.The 6” is the length of the cracker (think about any directional pattern your paper has)
3.With the 6” along the top score at 1 1/4 and 4 3/4
4.With the 5 ½ along the top score at 1 ¼, 2 ½, 3 ¾ and 5”
5.Fold all score lines
6.With the 6” along the top of the punchboard, line the paper at the 1 1/4 “ punch (no scoring)
7.Flip over the paper, score at 1 ¼

8.Tip: I put a yellow sticky note at the 1 ¼” on the punch board (see top left photo), it keeps me right there at 1 ¼ (good if you’re doing a lot and enjoying a glass of wine while crafting)
9.Repeat for all folds – see photo above for how it looks when all the punching is completed

10.Pinch one end of the cracker and tie with ribbon, then put the candy and tie the other end (yup I’ve tied both ends then thought… hmm should have put in some candy J)

11.Decorate with the cookie cutter creature or a paper cutout

Happy crafting, email me with questions, happy to pass on tips or ideas, MaryKate
