 Hello everyone,

Going to share a flat shaker with you today..and now I know how to do this I do not think I will ever go through the headache with seeds and beads falling out of my shakers again..and it is so easy to post..standard rate applies..

Here we go..

Sorted out my sequins and beads and things...

Found my images from my Geko Galz folder..washi tapes and also printed out the challenge sheet from Geko Galz so I wont wander off in my own direction..

Now for this flat shaker, I started off with a cellophane bag that I store my cards etc in, but you can use any type of cellophane,like packaging etc..
I cut off the sides and top and along the bottom I cut just passed the seam so it then has a very permanent fold for the card to slot into..then strong double sided tape around all side, fold cellophane in leaving an opening up top for sequins...

Spoon the sequins in and white micro beads and pearls..

Seal the top and shake..listen!.... can you hear it..

Stand her up and they all nestled back down the bottom..

And all those little pearls looks like ocean spray...

I tied on some twine... 

Took a fancy shot with props..😊

Stood her up again..

And there we go, flat as a pancake..

I'm entering this card into the challenge at Geko Galz Facebook Challenge 

This was project number one, if I get organised I will make another for one of the other themes.

Thank you so much for stopping by, hope you are all well and happy..
I will leave you a couple of pictures of my fist Winter in my new craftroom at 10am and I cannot complain..

Awesome shaker card with an amazing selection sequins , white micro beads and pearls. I have tried shaker cards but my shaking stuff always seemed to stick to sides or clump together .Well done Chrissy .

Imke said...

Absolutely brilliant Chrissy I would never of thought to use a cellophane bag to create a shaker but I may well try this out sounds so less fiddlier that using the foam pads etc, love the images you have used a right little smasher, your craft room is to die for, I am green with envy, lol.
