Napkin rings from the Cracker die

You know by now how I love to use my dies to the max and the Cracker die wasn't going to get away with just one function either! Here I am showing how I made some lovely napkin rings just by using the centre part of the cracker die :)

1. Put a piece of card behind the centre strip of the cracker die and cut on your machine.
(sorry this is a bit blurred ) 

2. You won't need the outside parts.

3. Cut these off cleanly with your guillotine.

4. Cut a strip of patterned paper the same size as the embossed panel and punch a border for each side.

5. Attach the borders and patterned panel with DST.

6. Decorate  - I have used Poinsettias made with the Lily, Clematis. Poinsettia Punch and Stamp set.


  1. These are just beautiful Ruth! Didn't know there was a cracker die, will have to check it out.

  2. Ooh, very pretty - I have two cracker dies! (the second was a present). I can get two cut from one sheet of A4, with one pass. I never thought of using them for anything else, so thanks for the idea!

  3. These look terrific and what a fabulous idea. Thanks for sharing - JenniferC from DoCrafts x

  4. What a cracker idea Ruth! Excuse the pun. Lovely touch for the Christmas table. :)
