I can’t resist animals dressing up or acting like people, it’s just too dang cute! These shakers (I did a video on making shaker windows, you can see it here) are filled simply with standard 1/4″ punched scraps of cardstock. I love how the paper circles bounce around in the shaker. Wouldn’t it be cool to use this technique on a scrapbook page with a photo of a kid an a “ball crawl” house? I think I have a photo like that from out first trip to Storyland…I’ll have to find it!
So, at the Stampin up party I went to I bought the jewelry tag punch that I used for the banner on the cards (FYI you can use any shape for a banner!) I sell handmade jewelry at craft fairs so it would be very handy and I love little spaces to stamp words and letters on cards. The tag does not have a hole in it though and if you want to punch one it likes to get stuck in your tiny punch. So I solved the problem by punching the inner hole first, you can use this tip to make tags from other small shapes too, use what you’ve got!
Here are the two cards close up, this first one is for a party we are attending tomorrow using the Circus Dog stamps:
Ane here is a generic one using Party Hat Cats I can have on hand when I need it:
I really recommend you have a look at the fun and funky stamps from Lost Coast Designs, they are unique quirky finds you can’t get elsewhere, I use them so much!
Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
