Shaker cards

This week's Make it Monday is to make a shaker card. I don't have any confetti; I have small kids, so I don't really want any in my house, but I did find the crack-your-teeth kind of sprinkles that look just like gumballs!


I used my cricut to make the base and lid of the machine out of PTI dp. the background papers are echo park and October Afternoon. The cardbase is PTI rustic cream as is the tag. I think the twine came from Mark's Finest Papers and the tag stamp and sentiment are Unity. The foam came from Walmart, and it was already sticky- yay for that- I don't have a sticker machine! 

My kids and I are going to make these as Valentines for their teachers. Off to find more hours in the day!

Side note: I've been having problems looking at everyone else's cool projects, and I'm not sure if it's my computer or Blogger. Grrr...
