Cracker hats

What is it about the hats you win in a Christmas cracker?  Once they are on, they seem to stay on for the rest of the day!


This layout appeared in the Creativity magazine published back in September, and I love the photo of Mum and Dad in their hats, even though lunch was hours earlier.  Another Christmas memory well worth recording!

The papers are Papermania Capsule Brights, I made the rosettes using an XCut border punch on a strip of paper which was then concertinaed.


The border is baker's twine glued on with wet glue, and buttons and stamped images, along with a title die cut from funky foam completed the page.

Ann, this IS Christmas. No two ways about it. Yet another feast for the eye. Your attention to detail is mind-blowing. Just love the twine idea!!
