Shakers Tutorial and Jellibean Packaging

Hi... so glad your here today. Shakers are so much fun. Here is a photo of the Jellibean Soup Packaging for the corrigated shapes. It is perfect to make a shaker. The plastic dome is perfect but also today I am using the background shaped piece. 

Using Lucy's fun card sketch for May I decorated the background packaging of the Jellibean Soup.

 (sorry for the colour, I am on the old computer and the photo editing software isn't as good as my laptop which is out for repair).

 Add the beads to the clear plastic .. I found this the easiest way. This way you can add the glue to the edge and flip the other piece on top centred within reason with a quick slide to centre it if necessary.

Here is the finished shaker. It made into a really cute guys birthday card. I think this is perfect for my Grandson.

It was so much fun I made another one which I totally papered covering the whole background first. I then added some cute accents, a banner and a sentiment. After using the same process to add the beads I added an accent on the outside to finish it off.

 Hope you enjoyed this today. Take inventory of your packaging of some of your scrappy items. How many more of them come in this type of packaging. Some of those small kids toys come in plastic domes also. Save them and make some of these cute shakers.
