I have never heard of Christmas crackers, but these treats are so adorable with the book pages. How do you resist making this adorable craft? I bet these would go well with a stocking gift or a plate of goodies that you want to give someone during the holiday season.

These Christmas crackers are really very cute, but it bothers me terribly that the blogger destroyed real books to make them! I think that it would be better if you found vintage Golden Books, like the ones she used, and just made several colour copies of the pages. Unless, of course, the book you had was already damaged. It it a cute tutorial. I bet you could make it to suit any party theme by switching up the paper wrapping.
