I Won the Fancy Pants Giveaway!

I was so happy when I found out I was the winner of this fabulous giveaway from Fancy Pants on the Paper Crafters Library blog! Just look at this!

All of these wonderful goodies filled the mailing box. I couldn't wait to make something - anything - with some of this cute Oh DEER! collection. So the first thing I did was grab one of the cute photo frames and turned it into a shaker card.

I used this red striped frame as the shaker cover. I love that saying, because it truly is the most wonderful time of the year. The snowflake paper was from the 6x6 paper pad in the prize. I cut it to an A2 size piece and adhered it to my Neenah Solar White card base.

To make the shaker, I added a piece of acrylic to the back of the frame. Using a dryer sheet on the acrylic will eliminate any static and help the sequins move around freely. Then, a double thickness of foam tape was added around the perimeter of the frame. The extra thickness of the foam gives the sequins you add lots of room to shake around. Also, use some baby powder on the sides of the foam tape so the sequins don't stick to the foam. 

Lastly, I added some of the sequins, a strip of ribbon along the bottom and adhered the shaker portion to the card base. Oh, I just love shaker cards, don't you? So fun!

Now I think I need to turn the rest of the frames into shakers. More cards for my Christmas card stash.

Thanks for visiting. I hope you, too, are enjoying whatever it is you love to do.
