Christmas wedding favour

Today I am sharing a photo of a Christmas cracker that is actually a wedding favor.
Inside will be an organza bag containing some chocolates.

I made 100 of them!!!  It sent me crackers, lol.

My Cousin gets married in December and I thought this would be a nice unique wedding gift for her and her bride to be, because they already live together. (I obviously asked her first).

The card was from lime tree crafts that I embossed with an A4 embossing folder, Victorian swirls.
Ribbon I purchased from Ebay.
Poinsettia die (I can't remember who by)
Leaves are a Tattered Lace die.
Diamante from pound shop.
Glitter glass from Anna Marie designs.
Organza bags purchased from Wish.
