ScraPerfect Shaker Bookmarks Flowers

Hi all

Would you like to learn how to make these fun shaker clips?
Tutorial is below.

  Start off by cutting out the pieces using a nesting die. Cut the base and top out first and then place a smaller die into the center to create a frame. Cut out two from craft foam and one from card.

 Glue the foam pieces together and then glue them to the base using Best Glue Ever. Once the glue has dried, fill the box up with sequins and micro beads.

Seal the box over with acetate and then glue the patterned paper frame over the top.

Decorate each one, i added small letters and gems to the clips. I then glued them onto large paperclips and placed some tape over the back to hold the clips in place while the glue sets.

The Glittery Hands Box Rainbow Shaker Planner Clip

Hello all

Who loves planners? well i tried and failed but i do love all the fancy stationery that comes with it so i have this super fun rainbow shaker planner clip to share which i made using this month's Glittery Hands Craft Box.

Use two small circle nesting dies and place the smallest into the center of the larger one. Secure with washi tape and then cut out two frames from craft foam and one from patterned paper.  Now take the small die out of the middle and then cut one from patterned paper for the base. Next cut out a circle from acetate for the top and that is all the pieces for the shaker box.
To put it together glue the two foam frames together and then glue those to the paper base.  Allow the glue to dry before adding sequins and glitter. 

Next seal the box with the acetate top and then glue the frame cut from patterned paper to the top to neaten it off.
Take the shaker box and use a strong adhesive to glue it onto a jumbo paper clip, Secure the back with washi tape while the glue sets.
Gather up a selection of brightly colored gems and glue them around the frame of the planner clip to finish off the project.
