Cutting the paper for our Giant Puzzle Crackers

Gold Paper Sheets for making Giant Christmas Crackers

I'm really glad that our new Giant Puzzle Crackers are doing so well because I truly love making them! They're a tad fiddly though and this is definitely a job for the summer before it gets too busy in the fall. So yesterday I picked up the huge sheets - almost 2 x 3 feet of sparkly gold brightness - to get a head start. Once they are cut and scored the work-intensive part of making these huge crackers is done and they can be stored until orders are ready to be filled in October.  

I have worked with paper for a living since 1987. And in fact my love of working with paper started when I was a wee girl in my beloved Miss Hall's kindergarten class at Maurice Cody Public School.  I remember so well, sinking my chubby arms into large wood boxes brimming with cut pieces of colourful paper and straws. There is still nothing more I enjoy doing than sitting down to cut and fold paper, shaping each sheet into a new 3-dimensional form. In this case, crackers!

If you love working with paper too, try our Origami Crackers for birthdays and Christmas!
