Let's Shake

   Hello everyone Mandi here today. I am sad to say it will be my last post for the term. Today, I thought it would be fun to show how to use die cuts in a shaker card 
I am sure you are like me and you have rolls of washi tape to last a lifetime. Here is a little tip match the print up and create a pattern paper with it. Adhere this to a card base. My card is 7" x 4" so I did the pattern paper a 1/4" smaller. 
I love these edger dies. All I did was run it through my die cut machine and took a craft knife ad removed the inside to create a frame. Now on the back of the frame, you would want to use a strong double-sided adhesive to attach a piece of plastic, I used an old page protector. After, the plastic is in place cover the inner frame edge with a foam adhesive. Set aside while we create the confetti. 
Now with the mini dies I did multiple cuts of each. This will be part of the confetti filler in the shaker. 
In the center fill the card up with the confetti die cuts and sequins. Since this shaker fills the entire card front I added a lot of filler. 
   Now, remove the foam adhesive backing from the frame and carefully line it up to the card. Press the frame edges down firmly to ensure no confetti of escaping.  Give it a shake and you are now done.
