Woodware UK: We're Shaking Things Up This Week!

The Woodware team is shaking things up this the form of shaker cards. Though mine isn't truly a shaker "card", it makes a great little giftie.

I used a leftover clamshell package from something that I'd purchased recently, and this became the container for my shaker. However, you could easily use one of the Stampendous Mini Stuftainers that Woodware carries. I stamped and embossed in White Embossing Powder Francoisé' new Dragonfly Clear Magic Single on black cardstock, and added bright pops of color with Sakura Moonlight Gel Pens. I added a sentiment from Jane Gill's Clear Magic sets, stamped in black, and also inserted a piece of acetate to protect the stamped and colored image from whatever goodies I decided to tuck into the shaker portion. In this case, I went very girly on my treats...lip balm, bubblegum, and hair clips in bright, happy colors. I also tied some girly ribbons to the hang tag of the clamshell container.

For an extra bit of bling, I applied a Dragonfly Peel Off sticker on the outside with some great Mark Richards crystals in a variety of colors. (If you don't happen to have all of the colors, you can use permanent markers to color the clear ones to match your creations!)

A larger shaker leaves plenty of room to go crazy creating these for every occasion, and for everyone on your giftie list, but if you happen to have the thinner and smaller shakers, you can have fun filling them with confetti, glitter, Card Candi, sequins, pompoms, etc.

Remember, all of this week the team will be posting their shaker creations, providing YOU with plenty of inspiration to get shakin'! Be sure to check the Woodware Blog daily!
