Shaker Card DIY Tutorial
Jennifer Snyder here today wishing you a Happy Memorial Day and remembering all those brave service men and women who gave their lives for our continued freedom.
Shaker cards using chipboard? Absolutely! Super easy too! Scroll down to see my simple DIY tutorial showing how I made these.
I simply glued two chipboard star shapes together and filled them. I don’t think shaker cards can get any easier.
The stars are not identical. They are all different and beautifully unique – but don’t let that distract you from trying this cool technique. You really don’t notice the differences when assembled. Actually I think the differences add a bit more charm to the card.
Here is my first card. The papers I used on this card are from Maja Design and are from the “Life in the Country” collection.
DIY Instructions – Tutorial
Choose your star chipboard pieces. Once again, I used Star Doodle Frame chipboard from Creative Embellishments.
Back one star with paper.
Next cut an acrylic star to fit the chipboard. Don’t have any acrylic? This is what I do….I eat the rest of the baked goods I bought for the family – this one happens to be the beloved cheese danish. Just wash and dry and instantly I have acrylic.
Look at the top of the container….all that lovely usable acrylic begging to become a shaker card.
The possibilities are endless – baked goods, fresh fruit and veggies, packaging from your crafts and crafting flowers….search the house high and low.
Here is the second card I created. I little more patriotic.
This was created using the Maja Design paper collection called “Life by the Sea”.
I decided to leave the chipboard natural for this card because the kraft color of the chippies really made a nice accent for the paper.
Thanks for stopping here today. May freedom continue to ring.
