Nice work. Did you know you can actually get the "cracker" inserts at a lot of the craft stores. Then you get that extra little 'pop' when you pull 'em.

LOL yea but say if you don't even have time to do that these are quick and very easy.

I was kind of hoping for the popping kind myself, otherwise they aren't really "crackers," more like nicely wrapped stocking stuffers. This is a good way to wrap small things, though.

@klixtopher, I haven't seen those inserts. Where have you seen them? What would they be near? Thanks!

Yea if you can find any you could just add them

I think I've seen them at Micheal's, definitely a seasonal item. Good Luck.
