J&C Creations - Christmas Table Decorations!

Good Morning!
Last week we had Christmas Tree Decorations at J&C CREATIONS BLOG and this week we have Table Decorations for those little finishing touches we all like to add to the Dining Table.
I'm starting this week off with a hand-made Cracker that you can fill with a treat of your own, my favourite thing to add is chocolate! However you could also leave the Cracker empty and simply use just as a decoration :)
To create the Cracker all you need is a spare Toilet or Kitchen Roll, Tissue Paper & Iridescent Paper.
Wrap the Tissue Paper around the roll, twisting the edges and keep in place with some selloptape. 


Trim the Iridescent Paper to fit the width of the centre and decorate. I have used some Archival Ink and a Rubber Stamp with the second generation technique (this is where you stamp your image 2 or 3 times before re-inking to create images with a different ink strength). When your happy with how it look secure this around the centre of the cracker and tie the end of the tissue paper with some Tinsel Twine.
Create a finishing touch of stamping a sentiment, cutting out with some Nesties and mounting onto a Snowflake Die-Cut. Secure this in the centre with some 3D Foam Pads. Embellish the sentiment with some clear Dew Drops.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Amazing centerpiece! It seems easy and simple to do as well, that is worth a try this holiday. And of course, I'd love to include that to my collection of Christmas table decorations in pinterest if you will allow me to. Merry xmas!
