Today I would love to share with you this fun shaker card. I have not made a shaker card for over a year, but I found an informative video by Lorrie Nunemaker which simplified the process. You can view her video by clicking on the link below.
I was able to use my Cricut Explorer to get the perfect cuts. I took Lorrie’s advice and used fun foam to pop up the card instead of foam tape. I haven’t used fun foam before and I loved it for this project.
For the shaker bits, I used sequins I purchased for my daughter years ago! I’m so happy I kept them
For the strings, I used twine I purchased from Michael’s and adhered them to the card by using art glitter glue from Amazon.
My ”oops” moment came after I filled the shaker with sequins, aligned cardstock over the opening and then proceeded to turn the card over to make sure everything looked centered. Can you figure out which step I forgot? Yep, I forgot to adhere the cardstock over the opening! Sequins went flying everywhere 😊
What’s one of your most recent ”oops” moments?
