Step 1: Down Load and Upload the SVG

Download the SVG to your computer and upload it to Cricut Design Space. If you are unaware of how the process works check out this video.

Step 2: Make It

You do not need to do anything to this SVG once it is in Cricut Design Space. You just need to click make it. Choose on Mat. Select Medium Cardstock and continue to cut out the file. Remove it from the mat by pulling the mat toward you and the pair down so that it does not curl.

Step 3: Fold It

You will be able to see the dotted lines. Fold the card stock along the dotted lines.

Step 4: Add the Cracker Snap

Place the cracker snap in the center of the cut out piece.

Step 5: Glue one End

Fold over one end so the outside is facing in and add your craft glue. Glue the end panels together.

Step 6: Add the Ribbon

Tie one f the diamond ends with the ribbon. Fill the other end with the goodies and tie the other end with the other piece of ribbon.

Step 7: Glue the Cracker Snap

Glue one end of the cracker snap to the end f the cracker. You will notice that the snap is longer than the cracker. This is to make it easier to snap. When it is time pull each end of the snap and the goodies fall out.
