I have this THING about Christmas crackers.
They have to be the big expensive ones that contain a gift that's almost worth keeping, a hat that usually fits without splitting and the usual dreadful joke.
I gather it all up.....usually as soon as the crackers have been pulled (to stop anyone screwing it up and throwing it all away) and later in the year, I recycle it.
The centre section of the cracker was used for the milk carton as it is slightly wider than the ends. I trimmed one of the long sides of the cracker to give a nice straight edge. This edge is the top of the milk carton which I then lined up with the top edge on the die.
