    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.

    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!

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