The Reusable Party Cracker... How does it work?

What makes my Party Crackers different?... you can RE-USE them.
Pull and they don't tear, to re-use simply replace the broken snap with a fresh one. You can fill them with your own choice of gifts too.
Crackers by 'Keep This Cracker' come flat-packed and ready-made, just pop them into shape. To see how... watch the movie above (1min 50secs!)
All orders are sent out PLASTIC FREE in cardboard envelopes, sealed with paper tape.

NEW IN for 2020... my latest invention, the ecosnap®. A silent snap that's pet-friendly, recyclable, compostable and made in UK. Exclusive to Keep This Cracker. You can also order your Reusable Crackers with standard snaps, subject to availability.
RECYCLED RIBBONS... My crackers now come with ribbons woven in the UK with yarns made from 100% used plastic bottles sourced from Europe.

It's estimated that over 100 million disposable crackers are pulled in one festive season in the UK alone. Did you know that just 12 million of these, laid end to end, could stretch from UK to the North Pole?

MY STORY...
I have worked as a packaging designer for many years and have always loved experimenting with paper construction. Some years ago I gave myself the challenge to design a re-usable alternative to the disposable cracker and in 2013 launched my first designs.
I'm so proud that my 'Hellebore' design was awarded Finalist in the 'Gift of the Year' awards. (Giftware Association UK).

PRODUCTS...
The collection includes; Festive designs and handmade Party Decorations and kits made of paper. Had enough of the usual cracker gifts? Here's the answer, you can fill these crackers with your own special choices.

HOW ARE THEY MADE?...
All designs are created in my studio and printed by a carton maker. The cracker parts are then threaded, assembled and packed by hand in-house. It's my mission to support UK manufacturing, so all the materials, including ribbons, packaging etc. are MADE IN UK. (Only the standard snaps are sourced from a UK importer as I don't know of anyone who makes them here.)

ALSO AVAILABLE: Packs of Replacement Snaps and Matching Gift Tags.
