This is the first shaker card I've ever made... I took the Simon Says Challenge as that: a challenge. I saw somebody's shaker (I don't know whose or where... sorry-- UPDATE: I had pinned THIS card in the past) with buttons and it stuck in my mind over the past few days, and so I just got to my desk this morning and did some craft therapy.
Supplies and notes:
- I built my shaker with miscellaneous hoarded packaging. I cut frames of scrap cardboard to lift the panel and house the shakeables. The clear plastic was from the first dies I ever bought (ummm, the only ones I have bought). I used Elmers Craft Bond and Ranger double sided super tape (what's that called? I can't remember now...). The front panel was a card from a Project Life kit.
- I grabbed some tiny buttons for my stash and put them in a plastic baggie with some Adirondack metallic mixative in Gold and did a little shakin'
- The background of the card is a piece of 6x6 from my talented homegirl Andrea at Snapping Monsters... she raided her stash a few months ago and sent me a bunch of bird-related papers... what a doll. I added a little Liquid Leaf in Classic Gold to accent the flags an the flowers and bird at the bottom.
- A Gluber was used to build a half-flower out of some scrap gingham, and I punched some decorative pins into it-- the leaf is from Maya Road, but I'm not sure what brand the bird is
- The last thing done was the adding of some Liquid Pearls in Rose Gold
I plan to enter this into Simon Says Wednesday: Shake It Up.
