Hey everyone! Peggy here with you today and I am going to show you how I make a shaker card. I haven’t made one in ages, but I love how fun, interactive and easy they are! I used LOTS of fun YNS dies to make my card and have them all listed at the bottom of the post.
First you need to gather all of your supplies that you will need. I found the little glass beads at the dollar store, they have lots of colors and they are cheap too!
The next thing I did was die cut all the shapes that I wanted to use and stamp the sentiment. This is a great way to use up those scraps that we never know what to do with!
Once I had my little scene the way I wanted it I used some thin strips of foam tape to create a box to hold all my beads and glitter. You don’t want to over fill, but you also don’t want to under fill it. I under filled mine at first, it was a mess to try and open it back up to add more beads! I will be cleaning beads up for a loooooong time!
The last thing I did was attach the window for the shaker and finish off my card! I think that the hardest part of this card was trying to decide what kind of scene I wanted, once I figured that out it it came together quickly.
