Home made Christmas Crackers.

I decide to make my own crackers this year for Christmas and when I saw the challenge over at Cuttlebug mania I knew that they would be perfect. The challenge is
'A Christmas project in any colour just not red and green' 
So here they are
I made individual Mocha Coffee test tubes to put into each one as the little gift
and up close.
 I really battled to get test tubes and ended up getting pill bottles instead. Unfortunately they where not big enough to put the pieces of chocolate into so I had to make a little plastic bag for that. I attached the bag to the bottle with crochet cotton.
The recipe is:
1st layer: 7ml hot chocolate
2nd Layer: 5ml coffee
3rd layer: 7ml non dairy creamer. I used Cremora 
Fill rest of test tube with pieces or drops of Dark chocolate.
On the back of the label I wrote:
Tip the contents into a mug. Add boiled water and stir. Enjoy.
I will also be entering this over at Simon says stamp blog work it Wednesday November where the challenge is to use dies.
