Hi Folks, I'm here today with a quick post for SpiegelMom Scraps sharing a fun shaker card.
I was sorting through my sequins and decided to mix the last few from a couple of different mixes together. I had some pinks from Magical Ocean and yellow and gold from Sunny Smiles. These were the exact colours of a vase of flowers I had on my bookshelf, so I knew they would work together. Now that I have completely used up these two mixes I have space for two more!!
I grabbed a doily and carefully cut the centre out using a craft knife. Rather than use foam tape as I usually would I used glue gel to pop up and adhere the shaker. I preferred the clear gel in this instance as the foam tape would have shown through doily.
I tied a length of 3mm ribbon from Crafty Ribbons around the card, and added an extra bow, in colours matching the sequins. A small stamped greeting finished it all off. I challenge you to think about your supplies a little differently... what can you make a shaker from?!
Thanks for stopping by!
