Shaker cards are fun and easy to make. The box gives a great focal point on your card and will delight any recipient. We have given easy to follow step-by-step instructions below, plus provided a couple of examples with instructions on how to complete.
Attach a piece of clear acetate to the back of your chosen frame. The acetate is shown as a dotted line on the picture laying on a yellow frame. This will be the "window" on your box.
TIP - To prevent finger prints and glitter sticking to the acetate wipe the acetate with an anti-static cloth.
Attach strips of foam tape to form a square on top of the edges of the acetate, inside the frame. Do not remove the top tape yet. Make sure that there are no gaps as your chosen filler can escape. If you wish to have a higher void you can build the layers of the foam tape up to the desired height.
Remove the strips from the foam tape. This is best done BEFORE adding the filler. Add you chosen filler. In the examples below I have filled one with tiny heart buttons and the other with pink Caviar beads. Don't overfill, you really don't need a lot. Add to the centre to avoid sticking to the tape.
This card uses a sheet of Bazzill Bling heavyweight cardstock.
