Card Making Tuesday Tips

Tuesday Tip: Shaker Card

October 11, 2011


Hi Kaisercrafties. Welcome to our weekly Tuesday Tip! Today we have Lori Williams Leng showing us how to make a ‘Shaker Card’.

Lori Says:
“I love making shaker elements/cards.  They are so easy and add a really fun touch to your projects. First here is a list of products you’ll need: Paper, X-acto Tool, Foam Tape, Glitter, Acetate Sheet .”

“You need three parts for the base shaker…the back, front frame and clear acetate sheet.  I reused the product packaging for the acetate and cut to size. For my sample I used one of our tags and cut out the center with an X-acto tool to form the frame. Once you have your top frame cut, cut your acetate sheet just a bit larger the the frame and glue down to the backside of the top frame. Next cut your back out to match up to your top frame. You know it’s correct when you layer the three pieces together and everything matches up along the edges.”

“Next line the back of the top frame with foam tape.  Be sure to have all the corners meeting with no gaps or holes or your shaker material will shake out.”

“Step four is add a bit of glass glitter or whatever you want to use for your filling.  There are all types of little things to use, so use your imagination.  Once you have your filling in the frame, apply the back with the foam tape and press down to be sure to seal it all around.”

“Finish off the front of your frame with any additional embellishments and shake away.”

“Here is my card I did using the Bonjour collection and where I added a shaker element.”

Materials Used:
Bonjour Paper Pad PP853, Bonjour Icon Stickers SS113, Foam Tape T303
