MFT Hits and Highlights - Shaker Ornaments


Shaker pouches are clearly an excellent option for integrating interactive elements into your card making, but we've got a fun new twist today just in time for the holidays. Today, we've challenged our team to create see-through ornaments with their choice of pouch. Use them to craft a miniature scene, add candy or a small gift, or simply pack with seasonal filler for some jolly shimmy and shake that will light up your tree. You could even tie a shaker pouch ornament to a package to serve double duty as decoration! Feeling festive? Let's get crafting!

I made these ornament with the plan to use them as package decorations because why not?? I'm using Tag Builder Blueprints 6 Die-namics and Circle Shaker Pouches by essentially making two copies, adding filler, and adhering them together! Easy peasy!!

This one is using Christmas Cheer Patterned Paper to guide the design, with Party Lights Die-namics cut from card stock using all the colors in the paper. To add some mobility, I added silver seed beads to the filler tied on ribbon and baker's twine and finished off with a sentiment from Bitty Holiday Wishes Stamp Set.

This one is identical in design, using Black & White Stripes Patterned paper and gold and silver glitter paper along with gold and silver seed beads. The sentiment was heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder where I used white on the one above. 

These made cute ornaments/tags and didn't take long to make at all! So get your craft on and create some double duty projects this Christmas! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you soon!
