Easy Shaker Cards

I like changing things up sometime and creating Shaker Cards is one way to do that. Try this easy tutorial and you'll be creating your own shaker cards in no time!

First assemble ingredients. Along with card stock you'll need, adhesive of your choice, scissors, die cutting machine and an option embossing folder.

Craft foam to match cardstock

Recycled acrylic packaging


Die cut frame

A frame cut from craft foam but a little smaller. Do not die cut. Use scissors

 Use the recycled acrylic packaging to cut a shape a little larger than your frame center

After all elements are cut and assembled

Emboss shaker background using a piece of cardstock that is slight smaller than the inside cut of the craft foam frame

Adhere the embossed paper to cut frame

 Adhere the foam frame to embossed cut and sprinkle with sequins

Adhere the recycled package (acrylic) to foam frame

Adhere cardstock frame to paper frame, then adhere entire shaker to cardstock base.

Add die cut sentiment and voila!
