The Man Cracker

Hi Everyone!

Today I bring you the man cracker πŸ˜‰

I made a cracker the other day but it was HUGE and I wanted to be able to scale it down a bit, ideally to get one out of a piece of 6×6 patterned paper.

I managed to get the measurements worked out and recorded a video over on Youtube of me making one from start to finish!
