Back by popular demand…. These Gift Crackers are amazing and make fabulous gifts for Birthdays, Anniversaries and to decorate your Christmas Table. The ingenuous part about them, is that Karen has designed them to pull apart, leaving the centre free for the gift. We are running this workshop particularly early, so that those of you that want them for the Christmas Table have plenty of time to make more of them after you have learnt the technique.Find out more »
