Hello there and happy Monday to all you fine crafty friends! I’m sharing a project I created especially for the April Challenge on the G45 Community FB page. The theme for this challenge is to upcycle or recycle. Of course I’m down for this! I love to recycle!!
I’m using this acrylic packaging from some brads as a shaker element for a card.
I was so happy to see that if I cut the center out of the middle of one of the ephemera cards I could slip the outside around the packaging and it fit perfectly!
I created a bit of a base to add the center of the card to so I could sandwich in the sequins. You all know how I love my sequins!
A garden of pretty coordinating flowers to top off the corner of the shaker.
This poofy bow in chevron topped with twine and a vintage button are the perfect final touch for the outside of the card.
Inside there’a a pocket that holds a tag with plenty of room for a gift card or small flat keepsake or memento.
The tag is a great place to add a sweet sentiment.
Please enjoy this process video I’ve created to show all the steps for creating this fun shaker card…..
Make sure you stop on over to the G45 Official Community Page to check out how you can join in the fun with this great challenge…and to get loads of crafty inspiration.
