I skipped the holiday crackers for my more “sophisticated” harvest extravaganza in August, but oooh they were missed! And for my Autumn Equinox Family Celebration, they are back in full force! Here are my suggestions for a fabulous September Festival favor… Olde English Crackers provides a wonderful set of directions including a basic list of supplies, which are available through their website. Beyond the basics, here are my specific choices for Autumn Equinox:

  •  Autumn Equinox Apple Lore– Usually I enclose riddle cards, but for this holiday, somehow I felt an urge to include cards describing cultural mythologies and lores concerning apples. I made them myself using Microsoft Word and lavender printing paper. Feel free to make your own or use these. Lore courtesy of Druidry.org
Additional Tips & Tricks:
  • Take your time laying out contents, maintaining your organization, and completing each step. It decreases stress and increases quality and enjoyment!

  • I like to decorate my riddle cards with colorful marker and even fold them like fans just to make them feel even more festive.

  • When fastening the snappers and the wrapping paper, before applying any glue, roll the paper over the form to make sure it is lined up properly, so the ends meet nicely.

  • Sometimes I create stoppers so small trinkets do not fall out. This time, I am trying something new: enclosing trinkets in Organza Pouches so they don’t fly too far! (Purchased mine from Michaels Stores)
