Unique Shaker Card Idea | Sandpaper Road

Summer isn’t over yet, so let’s relax with a fun, fruity drink! This 15,24 cm x 15,24 cm (6″ x 6″) shaker card is perfect for a celebration or just for fun! It’s easy to make with some small beads, some foam tape, and the “Warm Breeze” paper collection by Craft O’Clock.

If you live in the USA, you can pick up the “Warm Breeze” paper collection at the Sandpaper Road Shop HERE:

Use a 6″ x 6″ (15,24 cm x 15,24 cm) card base for this project. Choose a piece of patterned paper for the card front. Cut to 4″ x 4″ (10,16 cm x 10,16 cm).

Use your roll of double-sided tape (or circle-cutter or die cuts) to cut a “rainbow-shape” hole in the paper. Using a pencil, trace the outside ring and the inside ring of the roll of tape, and then cut out the shape with a craft knife or scissors. Cut a small piece of acetate or clear plastic to 3-3/4″ square (9,53 cm square), and glue or tape the plastic over the BACK side of the hole.

Carefully use foam or cardboard to line the open area for the shaker material. If you are using foam tape, keep the release paper on one side of the tape so you can work with it. Do NOT fill up the “rainbow-shaped” shaker area yet.

Continue using foam or cardboard on the entire back of the 4″ x 4″ (10,16 cm x 10,16 cm) paper, except for the “rainbow-shaped” area which will hold the shaker material.

Once the entire back is covered, pull off all the release paper (or add liquid glue) to the foam/cardboard. THEN, add the fill material to the “rainbow-shaped” area. While the shaker piece is still laying flat on the table, lay the 4″ x 4″ patterned paper piece over top (it will stick to the foam tape). Press firmly.

Adhere the shaker panel to a slightly larger cut piece of patterned paper. I used a variety of layering to create a few panels before I adhered everything to the card base. Then, I decorated the rest of the card with Extras to Cut (fussy-cut elements), fussy-cut flowers and a few quotes from the Junk Journal Extras to Cut Set.
