Christmas Bon-bon

Today I made a bon-bon to take to my quilter's group christmas party. Everyone was given instructions on how to make one plus a snap (to make the bang). Inside is a fat quarter of fabric (I also added a chocolate for a sweet surprise). You are supposed to use christmas paper for the wrapper, but I found some nice paper with chocolates on it amongst my wrapping papers. Sarah would be proud.
I then added the ribbons and then thought it needed something else, and thought maybe a button. So I had a look through my collection and found a gingerbread lady. Voila! She is done!
Cheers,
Sandi xx

Your Christmas Cracker looks fabulous - what a terrific idea for a Christmas party - especially being able to customize the filling. Love the chocolate paper.
