Christmas Cracker Swap

This is another bit of fun we are having at Crazy Quilting International - a Christmas Cracker Swap. These are the two that I have sent out. They are tubes wrapped in fabric and filled to overflowing with goodies that can be used in our crazy quilting pursuits. It is a lot of fun to see how much you can fit in the tubes! I have to admit I cheated and took two tubes for each, cutting them apart and then taping them back together overlapping to make a bigger cylinder. lol Just couldn't get enough in the regular paper towel tube.
Now, of course, more fun will come when I receive my Christmas Crackers in the mail and get to shake, rattle and roll then while I wait for Christmas so I can open them. This has become an annual event and I really enjoy it.

These look fab Kerry:O)
What beautiful fabric on the 1st one.
You got a wonderful idea cutting 2 kitchen rolls up. I had a horrid job trying to cram everythng into my 7inch roll...they '' gifties'' will be all creased up when taken out giggles.
I even had to tie a gift on the outside of the cracker!!!!
