B-day Shaker

Shakers are a fun kind of interactive card. This birthday shaker featutes Lawn Fawn plaid, a Memory Box die, Simon Says Stamp stamp, and fun.


These are not affiliate links just the products I use and where you can find them, too (if they're not retired).

Putting It Together

My friend gave me this plaid a while back, when I was looking for something to paper piece for a Dorothy. The Wizard of Oz project has been on my To Do list for a while, but keeps getting delayed. I decided to use some of this lovely paper as the background for a multi-colour shaker.

I decided to use a multi-circle die and fun foam to build up the shaker.

I dry fit the plaid and a white panel on a card base with the die to layout my card.

To make it easier to have the two top pieces line up, I adhered them together with removable adhesive.

After die cutting..

I sandwiched some clear acetate from recycled packaging between the plaid and the white panel and fit the plaid rings into place.

I attached the foam to the back of the panel and filled the circles with four colours of dollar store sequins.

I used a scrap of cardstock to cover the back of the shakers.

I like making the shaker as a stand alone piece so it's easier to add to a card.

I added a sentiment and adhered the shaker.

Inside the card, I used the four cut out circles to add a bit of decoration.
