Saucer Crackers

A friend mentioned that she was planning a vintage tea party and I remembered some saucer crackers I has seen in a magazine a while back and got to wondering if it was something I could cut on my Silhouette using a small pattern paper ….. and this is what I came up with ……
saucer crackers
I managed to get six crackers from one sheet of A4 sized paper using these dimensions.

I believe “the real thing” has a snap and a motto inside ….
…… I don’t know about the snap …. but I am sure I could type out a few mottos or jokes and then find a pair of stud earrings, a bracelet or necklace to pop in!

And just think about Christmas …… you could use Christmas colours and papers and put in Christmas earrings …… the world is your festive lobster!!!
The ribbon I have used is 4mm wide.
