Shaker Card is one of my favorite planner accessories. It gives my planners some character. It is easy to make even without those pricey cutting machines. Just as long as you have a paper cutter and a pair of scissors, you're good to go.
Let me show you how I made mine. I have 2 versions, one that uses Foam Sheets and the other using double adhesive foam tape. The one I'm showing you now is the Version 1 (foam sheet). Version 2 will be posted too soon.
Card Stocks or Board paper around 160 - 200 gsm for a sturdy output (Printed, plain or colored)
Scissors / Cutter
Foam Sheets (ver. 1)
Step 1. Prepare your materials. I have these pre-punched paper (jar and tag) from our monthly planner meet. If you have punchers with different design, you can use it. If you don't have a puncher, don't worry, you can draw a pattern you want to use and then cut it using your paper cutter or scissors. Show your creativity, girl! :)
Step 3. Get it (front part) and use it to trace pattern to the foam sheets. Cut it along the line too.
Step 4: If you're using plain card stock, you can use stickers, stamps or you can draw any designs on it. This would be your background / back part of the shaker card.
Step 5: Glue the foam sheet on the back part (or the cardstock with design), and the acetate on the front / window part. You can put 2 layers of foam sheet here so the gap between the front and back is much bigger, thus, the blings can move freely.
Step 6: Once you're done with it, put blings (sequins, beads) inside the hole, then use the front part (with the acetate) to cover it.
Step 7: This is optional, but you can use washi tape to cover your card stock (if using plain one) to add more design.
And here's the finished product. :)
