A Spring Shaker Card

Let’s put a little shake into a spring card! Creating shaker boxes is a fun and easy project.  All you need is some foam tape, sequins, confetti or beads and a small piece of acetate. Decorating the inside is the best part!


To create the shaker, use an electronic die cutting machine to cut three nested rectangle frames. The staggered sizes give this shaker some depth. Back these with thin strips of foam tape to give them a little lift. Attach the transparency to the smallest frame.


Create the bunny scene in the center of the card. Then carefully glue some sequins around the card so that when you put it in the envelope all of the embellishments don’t just collect at the bottom. Last, carefully peel the foam adhesive tape backing and center the window right over the scene.


Use a foam Thicker title to add a sentiment to the card. Here I chose the word “happy” in white. This title on the white background creates texture without taking the focus off of the shaker. I tucked two small puffy bunnies just peeking out from the title to add a tiny bit of color and fun to the card.


The design itself is simple and this is the kind of project that you can put together in a quickly.  Shakers are pockets full of love and fun!
