Filling Your Everlasting Crackers

Posted by Lucy Logan on

Your everlasting cracker is designed to be reused and refilled year-after-year. Here are some step-by-step instructions for how to fill your crackers:

Each cracker is made in two halves, one slightly smaller in diameter than the other so they tightly fit together.

 To fill your crackers, gather together your choice of gifts, joke and hat, along with the snap that comes with the cracker. We recommend choosing gifts that aren't too heavy and fit comfortably into the inner tube of the cracker.

 Untie the ribbon at both ends of the cracker and then fill the smaller of the two halves with your choice of contents.

 Once your cracker is filled and the snap is in position, slot the smaller tube inside the larger tube, ensuring the snap is visible at both ends. Ensure you tightly tie the ribbon at both ends to secure the snap.

 You should be able to see the snap if you look down each end of the cracker - this is how you know the snap is in the correct place:

When you pull your cracker, please ensure you tightly grasp both ends of the cracker to stop the snap from slipping.
As an extra tip to ensure the snap doesn't slip when the cracker is pulled, we recommend folding both ends of the snap at 45 degrees and stapling these folds as per the below:
This step can be done before or after the cracker has been assembled.
