Welcome to Day One of a blog hop for Simon Says Stamp to celebrate our Kisses release! Today I’m sharing a full panel shaker card created with the leftover bits from the following card:
I shared this card on my YouTube channel and had a bunch of leftover hearts so I thought: you can make a shaker with those bits!
I used a full panel shaker from Waffle Flower Crafts to wrap the panel and fill it up! I just chose some inks to create a background panel to match.
Here’s the video showing you how I created the shaker, even with a few mess ups along the way.
Now onto the blog hop for inspiration and ideas!
