Hands up who has gone to Christmas lunch and cracked a bon bon, only to discover a super cheesy trinket they immediately binned? Well then, this project’s for you.
These Christmas bon bons are super simple to make, and the best part is you get to choose the gift that goes inside. The only rule? The items need to fit within an empty toilet roll. We’re talking chocolates, miniature bottles of alcohol, toys, games, puzzles, or even more upmarket items like jewellery and gems.
If you’re looking to add a personal touch to your Christmas lunch, then this might be just the ticket.
Time: 10 minutes (per cracker)
Skill level: Beginner
What you’ll need:
Take your piece of paper and place one toilet cone in the centre, vertically.
Thread one Christmas cracker snap through the centre of the empty toilet roll and tape it at both ends to keep it in place.
Take your goodies (jokes, toys, gifts) and place them inside the cone.
Put a toilet roll at each end of the centre roll and roll your glue tape down one side of the paper. Then wrap it around the cones and carefully press down.
With your hands, lightly crinkle the edges of your centre cone, to make a guide for your ribbon to wrap around.
Take 20cm of ribbon and tie the ends of each cracker together, to keep the goodies inside and create that classic Christmas bon bon shape.
That’s it! You’re done. Now all that’s left is to have a crackin’ Christmas.
