Recycle Shaker Card – Trash to Treasure
I got the idea for this card after I had purchased some bar magnets from My Sweet Petunia. Honestly, I like using them when stamp with my MISTI so much more than the round magnets. They seem so much easier to pick up and move or just slide in and out of place when stamping (but that is my opinion). Anyway, each magnet comes in a plastic package. The back of the package seemed perfect to recycle into a shaker card!
After measuring the outside of the “shaker”, I created an SVG cut file to cut out the “shaker hole” in the front of the card and the frame to cover the plastic edges of the shaker on the inside of the cards. (NOTE: Trimming the plastic looked a bit uneven, so the little blue frame covered it up for a more finished look.)
Stamping the Tiny Pine and stenciling the card front was a quick job. The holly and berries were stamped separately and then fussy cut-out. The berries were added with a low profile (1mm) pop dot for a little added dimension.
This is the end result!
