Present Shaped Shaker Cards – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Christmas Present Shaker Card

It is time for another design team post for The Cutting Cafe.  This time we are all about Christmas and shaker cards.  We could choose from either the Christmas Word Shakers or the Christmas Shape Shaker Cards which I used.  This file comes with eight different shapes including a bell, a snowman, a mitten, and the present that I used.

I used glitter paper and added foam tape to create the shaker area.  There is a tutorial on the website on how to make the shakers as well as written directions in the file.  They are really easy to make.  I used hexagon shaped glitter from Martha Stewart for my shaker element.

Even though this is a Christmas file, it can still be used for other things.  For example, I used the same file to create a birthday card…

I changed the size of the card and made the bow smaller so the background paper would show.

I used star shaped glitter from Martha Stewart for this one as well as one of the Birthday Hershey Kiss Bottom Printable Stamps for the sentiment in the center of the bow…
