How to upcycle christmas crackers

Hi Everyone,
I went to a christmas tea party and came across pretty xmas crackers that the cleaning staff was going to discard so I took a couple home with me.
I decided to use a few of them to make xmas cards.

The rest I brought to one of the crafty recycling workshops I organised with kids and we made xmas tree decorations out of the christmas crackers ( stapling a ribbon out of one end of the almost discarded crackers.)

We also made gift bags out of the brown bags that I collect from buying some of my lunches in town and the girls were able to put their xmas crackers decorations and cards into their newly made gift bags. They were delighted with it and I was delighted for them. It is very inspiring to inspire creativity in others.
