Step by Step paper crafting tutorials

Hello Nerds!!
I am here to share with you on how to make a card, a fun card—Shakers!! With Jillibean Soup’s Shape shaker products, it is super easy, and really fun.

First step, collect your supplies: card base, patterned paper, die cut pieces, metal dies, shape shakers, sequins, adhesive, For my tutorial, I used Jillibean Soup’s Mushroom Medley, Pea pods, small circle shape shakers, and small circle die.

Take 2 (or more–your choice!) coordinating papers, and cut to size to fit your your card base.  In my case, I cut one piece smaller than the other.

I then adhere the pieces together. You can use your tape runner for this, or whatever adhesive is of your choice. I am very friendly with my sewing machine these days, so I sewed my pieces together, as you can see in the photo:

Place the metal die onto your your paper, place onto your die cut machine’s platform, and run it through your machine. I have a Cuttlebug, and it required a  shim (extra cardstock over the platform). I ran the it through my ‘Bug a couple of times, to ensure the die cut through the papers, as my papers are more of cardstock consistency.

Once cut, your will have a die cut through your papers.

Next step requires taking a shape shaker and fill it with desired amount of sequins. I used heart sequins and little die cut/confetti butterflies.

Once your shaker is filled, take a piece of cardstock large enough to cover the back your shaker, making sure that it covers it entirely AND has space for you to adhere to your card base. remove the protective adhesive barrier from the shaker and attach.

I then used my ATG to put adhesive all over the little piece of cardstock, ensuring that the shaker will not move
