Scottie Crafts cracker fun

Hope you are all having a 'cracker time' !!! I am loving seeing the amazing DT crackers and cant wait to see  more over the next few days!
Meanwhile, a little more inspiration!

Some instructions:

Cut a tube into a 4" and 2x 2" pieces and tack onto your cardstock or paper with a gap of about 1".
To make the crease - lightly brush some water around the paper to soften it, crumple it a little and push the ends into the centre.

Cut a rosette from the Tim Holtz Snowflake Rosette and a smaller one from the Mini Snowflake Rosette
Run a strip of TH paper tape or other washi tape along the back of the rosettes, so that when you fold them, they dont split.
Grab a favourite Christmas stamp and randomly stamp.
Form rosettes. (I use a hot glue gun) Using a dauber, brush the edges with  Evergreen bough Distress ink (or a colour to match your chosen patterned paper). Spray with Perfect Pearls to give a lovely sheen.

The patterned paper I have used is from the Graphic 45 Twelve Days of Christmas paper.
Layer up your rosette and add ribbons and bling!
