The Earthbites crew teamed up with natural materials artist and instructor, Rebecca Graham, and headed over to the garden at Trafalgar Elementary School. With the help of the boys and girls at Trafalgar Out of School Care Society we created beautiful fences out of willow and ivy!

Another craft we love at Rocky Mountain Flatbread are these handmade holiday crackers.

You can use anything as your base but one of our favourite options is to use toilet paper rolls – a little bit of recycling and a lot of crafting! You can take the time to write out jokes, or personalized messages and pop them into the toilet roll before you wrap up the cracker. Additionally, you could pop a little prize or two in the toilet roll before you wrap it up for even more excitement when you pull them apart! These holiday crackers are a great way to wrap up little gifts (like lip balms or hand creams) as well!
Basic steps include:
- Find a suitable base, we like to use toilet rolls.
- Write out a joke, or personalized message and slide it inside the toilet roll with the popping part of the cracker.
- Choose your wrapping paper, cut to size (you want the paper to be about 6 inches bigger than the base is long so you have a 3 inch overhang on each side) and roll your cracker up.
- Once the paper is secured in place around the toilet paper roll (we like double sided tape for this), tie the cracker up on either side of the toilet paper roll using your favourite ribbon or twine.
- Ensure the popper is centred in the roll and anchor the ends down to the wrapping paper with double sided tape.
- Decorate the outside of the cracker however you like.
We hope you have a chance to try making your own crackers this holiday season.
Good luck and happy crafting!

Basic steps include: cutting out triangle shaped pieces of fabric, sewing them rights sides together along the two longer edges and then turning the fabric right sides out. Iron your fabric and then sandwich the flags between some brightly coloured folded bias tape. Pin in place and then stitch alond the edge of the bias tape. Hang around your house or even on your holiday tree. For more in depth details follow this clear and excellent tutorial from Sew In Love. You could even take it one step further and cut out some felt letters and add a happy message!
