How to: Do It Yourself Christmas beauty crackers

Christmas crackers solve our gifts dilemma with an eco-friendly and colourful solution able to transform even the smaller present into a lovely discovery all year around! Why and how? Keep reading...

Christmas crackers are a British tradition and can be replicated with easy at home to customize little gifts with a touch of fun. They are a recurring presence on every and each Christmas table used as place cards and looks like tubular candies, indeed they were created in 1847 by Londoner Tom Smith for his bonbons.

All you need for your own small or big Christmas crackers are:
toilet tubes, cracker or crafting papers, scotch tape, ribbons and cracker snaps which allow the cracker to "explode".
They are the perfect solution for those little gifts like, nail polishes and lip balms that, despite always appreciated would look too small!


With or without the "boom" from which the cracker has taken its name, you can create your Christmas packages and, in this case, your gifts will look like a simple and safer candy.
I usually make use and recycle empty toilet paper tubes or sturdy cardboard and 
bright wrapping papers to create my do it yourself and ecological gifts.

Christmas crackers are a favourite season package chosen by several beauty brands.
Here's Marc Jacobs Beauty "The Night Owl" cracker featuring its bestseller Velvet Noir Major Volume mascara

Christmas crackers look lovely on the top of a full dinner table or under your Christmas tree and extremely easy to do!
They are so versatile that can be created on every occasion throughout the year when a small gift has to be given and to create a bigger surprise...
