Oh, Snap! Festive Crackers

Amber Gameiro

The ‘Christmas Cracker’ has been a long-standing tradition, but they don’t have to be just for Christmas.  Valentine’s Day, birthdays, Easter, New Year’s, there are many special events throughout the year you can fancy up with this festive party favour.

These pretty ‘snapping’ tubes are usually filled with… let’s face it… junk.  Throw away plastic toys and a tissue paper crown?  Pshaw!

Make them instead, for a fraction of the cost and fill them with meaningful and personalized items of your own choosing.




These are perfect for Christmas, New Year's Eve or any party where you want to add a little fun to the table!

Living in Ontario, Canada, this wife and mother decided, yes, like many others, to start a blog after much ‘encouragement’ from friends. Initially, as a way to share creative ideas, hoping for honest feedback, and maybe, just maybe, inspire others.Started in March 2011, SaltTree has since grown quite an archive, an impressive following across several platforms and has been featured on dozens of websites & blogs.More than a year after its humble beginning, Amber is still stealing away little moments to create, cook and dream, camera in hand, all while chasing a toddler.
