Today’s Craft – Spectacular Shakers

Shaker cards provide so much opportunity for getting creative with filler material and background work! Adding stamped images to the shaker backer adds intrigue — every shake offers a new combination of background and shaker material…you’re recipient is in for hours of entertainment! Adding in small die cuts with your beads and sequins carries the theme throughout your project.
