Shaker Box Tutorial & WOYWW

Happy Wednesday folks! A week or two ago a blog reader asked me to do a tutorial on making a shaker card. The shaker tag I had made was roughly slapped together (it looked fine from the outside though and that was all I cared about) but I wanted a more elegant method if I was going to show someone else how to make one…I know “Lindsay” and “elegant” are not commonly associated but I came up with a rather elegant method of making a shaker:

 

All the stamps are from About Art Accents, they carry the best Oriental themed stamps, use the coupon Lindsay10% to save on your order! This fun shaker card only takes 10 minutes to make and it is easy. Also I share several stamping tips in the video:

Here is a close up of the window:

 

You can use confetti, glitter, beads, buttons or small punched shapes in the window, be creative!

 Oh and before I forget, today is Wednesday (as in What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday) so here is a pic of my desk after I made my card:

 

In case you are wondering I promptly cleaned it up after taking the photo! No, really! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  1. What a great tutorial!!! I was curious…I have seen and heard several mention the “homemade” glue dots using Aleene’s Tack-It-Over-and-Over…Are these as strong as the “brand” name ones? I usually use Glue Dots or Zots brand.

    BTW…I was looking though my latest issue of Card Creations Magazine that came in the mail yesterday…I saw a few cards and though, “HMMM…that looks like something Lindsay would make!” And, lo and behold, YOU DID MAKE IT! Thought you would get a kick out of that!

    • Well Valerie, You got a copy before I did LOL! I guess I’ll keep my eye’s peeled on my mailbox:) I find the homemade glue dot to be just as stick (if not more!)
