Create This Elegant Tell The Bees Shaker Card

Hi all

I have a card made using the Tell The Bess collection.

Cover a 5 x 7 blank card with Tell The Bees Patterened paper.

Cut  a large rectangle out of gold honeycomb paper using a nesting die and glue to the edge of the card. Leave rougthly a 5 mm gap so that the bottom layer firms a frame.

Cut another smaller rectangle out and glue across the card. Add matching ribbon and trim to fit. 

To create a shaker box, take any nesting die of yout choice and take the largest size and place the next size down inside to make a frame. Secure with tape and then cut out one frame from foam and one from paper. If you want a deeper shaker box then cut a few extra foam frames and glue them together.
Seperate the dies and then using the largest size. Cut out a base from patterened paper and a top out of acetate.

Glue the foam frame to the base and leave to dry before adding sequins. Then glue the acetate frame to the top and once dry add the frame cut from pattetened paper. Glue this to the edge of the paper layers.

Finish ofc by cutting out the bees from the toppers sheet and gluing them to the shaker box.
