Carrots and snowmen crackers

We've been working super hard over the past few months designing and developing a set of six luxurious carrot and sprouts themed Christmas crackers each with a little wooden snowman inside. 

One of the crackers in the set also contains a lucky 'snowball'. They can then be used to play tabletop snowman bowling - the perfect after dinner game for some fun family time.

Sprouts and carrots and snowmen bowling - pretty awesome right?

We've sold over 18,000 sheets of our carrot, snowman, and sprouts wrapping paper since launching the range two years ago. This year we wanted to take the designs to the next level - and crackers seemed perfect!

We found a fantastic UK manufacturer. We designed, planned, and priced the production of 96 boxes of six crackers. Had some gorgeous samples made, and fell in love. We just knew that we had to make the crackers a reality. 

The production process is simple and straightforward – we supply our wrapping paper and wooden toys to the manufacturers: they make, fill, and box them; we add our Clara and Macy labels (and love). And voila - gorgeous festive crackers.

All we need are the funds to make it possible. £722 to be exact. And that's where you can help!

Because we're launching a Kickstarter campaign today!

You can pre-order our crackers exclusively through Kickstarter at a special early bird price. There are only 96 boxes available. 

Or you can support our little business by pledging to receive one of our other brilliant rewards - there are plenty of options for every budget. From digital greetings cards to matching notebooks to luxury hampers full of our festive goodies.

I'm so nervous about it! And also super excited... launching a crowdfunding campaign feels like such a big thing.

But you'll have to be speedy because our campaign is closing at 11.59pm on Friday 11th November. That's only 8 days away - eek!

Early bird cracker pre-orders

Right now pre-ordering through Kickstarter is the only way to get your box of Clara and Macy crackers. 

Whichever pledge level is for you, we'll be extremely grateful to have you as part of our funding team. Every single pledge will help us reach our target of £722 (in just 8 days!) and will be a huge support in growing our little business.

And if pledging isn't right for you, perhaps you could share the details with a friend. That would be amazing! 

Thank you so much!
