Leaf Shaker Card - the October Monthly Craft Kit Project

Sometimes you just like to have someone else do the thinking for you.  I do enjoy the creative aspect of papercrafting, but sometimes I just like to make pretty stuff and I don't want to have to think too hard. That's part of why I like getting Stampin'UP!'s monthly craft kit.

Each month its a surprise: We never know ahead of time what the project will be - sometimes its cards and sometimes its some other paper project. But its always something fun, and how cool is this - the October 2016 project was a Shaker Card!

There's 2 Key things to making a Shaker Card
  1. You can use any shape hole . . . this card uses a leaf shape,
    but you need the acetate window sheet to cover the hole and to see through
  2. You can fill the shaker space with any small item . . . this card uses sequins,
    but you need an adhesive with some dimension so they have room to move around
    Stampin'UP!'s Adhesive strips are designed for making Shaker Cards.
