Making the Shaker Pocket
The shaker on this card is easy to recreate with the Keepsake Envelopes. It’s also a quick, time-saving way to make an interactive card!
Start by cutting a piece of cardstock to fit inside the pocket envelope. I went with white cardstock, but you could use any other color out there. Then you simply stuff the pocket with sequins, beads or, even, glitter!
There is adhesive on the pocket, but I wanted to add a little adhesive to it since the sequins I used were pretty small. I worried they might fall out when I mailed the card. So I simply added a small piece of Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4in to the pocket. It’s perfect because it’s clear when you remove the red backing paper.
Imagine making all kinds of shakers like these to use on cards, as well as scrapbook pages and tags!
Using a Shaker on a Card
I made my shaker pocket so it could go on a card. I’m not one to send cards out for Independence Day, but I wanted to create a general card to send to one of my friends in early July! You’ll notice I used a white, blue and red color scheme to make this card because of that.
I added a few stars too. They were easy to make! I simply took a couple 3D Foam Stars, placed them on my project and rubbed foil onto them!
The hello word looks like a pre-made embellishment. Guess what? It’s not! I made it myself by applying foil to a piece of foam from the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit. Then I simply die-cut the word from it and put it on my card! Easy peasy!
I hope you are inspired to make an easy shaker pocket of your own! I’d love to see it! Please share a link to your project so I can take a peek!
