Hello, all you Scrapbook Nerds! It’s time for another tutorial and this week I’m going to show you how I created this shaker birthday card using my WRM Fuse Tool.
What you need:
- A card base
- WRM Fuse Tool
- clear pocket page
- patterned papers and matching embellishments. You will need some smaller embellishments to put inside your shaker. For this tutorial, I’ve used the Simple Stories So Rad collection.
1. For my shaker, I fussy cut a computer from the 4×6 cut-apart sheet from the So Rad collection. Once I cut it out, I cut the computer screen out as this will become my shaker.
2. Once my computer screen was cut, I laid the computer onto my page protector, lining it up with the sides that are already fused. Then I traced the outside of the screen with a marker.
3. Using the Fuse Tool and the included ruler, fuse on the inside edge of one of your marker lines. Be sure to still leave one open to fill your pocket. If measured properly, you fused lines will end up hidden by the die cut.
4. Fill your pocket and fuse the remaining edge.
5. Cut on off the excess plastic.
6. Adhere behind the computer die cut so that the fused sides are hidden.
Assemble your card:
1. I used a kraft card base. On top of the base, I used the newsprint paper from the So Rad collection.
2. Next, I cut down the striped journaling card and placed on the bottom of the card.
3. Add the computer shaker.
4. Add the sentiment as desired.
There you have it – a fun birthday shaker that any boy would love to get.
