Shake, shake, shake

shakercards

Shaker cards are SO popular right now, and we can see why – they’re so fun! With a few products and steps you can transform a plain handmade card into a cool, interactive card. Want to learn how to make them? Jillibean Soup has made it SO easy to create awesome shaker cards with their new line of coordinating products!

Start with a card base, featuring a pre-cut window. Then, grab the card shaker in the same shape as the window on the card base. There are multiple shapes to choose from – clouds, mason jars, stars, circles, and more.

Decorate the front of the card however you would like. There are coordinating stamp sets you can use, you can use patterned paper or embellishments … the sky is the limit.

Next, fill the shaker with sequins, glitter, small beads … whatever you would like. Next, open up your card base so that the inside of the card is facing up (the front of the card should be laying on the table). Drop the shaker into the hole and then remove the adhesive from around the shaker. Close the card so that the shaker sticks to the inside of the card.

Voila! A fun card that’s sure to make anyone smile.

But wait, it gets better! What if you don’t want to use the pre-cut card bases? What if you want to make a shaker tag or want to use a different color card base? Good news – Jillibean also has dies that match the shakers! Simply die-cut the shape on your tag or card base, and then follow the same steps to add the shaker.

That’s not all…

The Jillibean Soup products make it SUPER easy to create shaker cards, so they’re the perfect place to start for someone who’s new to shaker cards, or for someone who wants to create them quickly. But, they’re not the only products you can use! You can use nearly any die – and even some stamp sets – to create shaker cards, too.
