Creating a Shaker Element Tutorial

Just crawling out of hibernation. I’ve been a little busy with stuff and the time just flew by. I thought I had this post scheduled but it didn’t post. So here is my tutorial for simple shaker cards.  I made some shaker cards last month and thought it would be fun to share the steps with everyone.

First, lets get all the materials ready.

a. Pattern paper for the top frame of your shaker

b. Chipboard

c. Base image for the shaker

d. Clear acetate

e. Glitter or Sequins


1. PIck an image from your patterned paper for the base image. For this project I choose this lovely image from RRBF’s My Romance line.

2. Cut the chipboard, acetate and top frame to the same size as your base image.

3. Leaving a 0.5″ to 0.75″ border, cut out the middle sections of your chipboard and top frame just like the picture above.

4. Make a sandwich with the base image at the bottom, followed by the chipboard frame, acetate and top frame. Check that all layers align correctly before we start gluing the shaker together. I use a wet glue for this project as it allowed me to move the pieces around a little before everything bonded together.

Here is a video showing how the layers should be assembled. Do excuse the quality of the video. It’s my very first attempt at a video.

Here is the card all assembled:
