My latest obsession has been making shaker tags. I made the two tags pictured in this post and brought them in to work. My coworker was shocked and said it was an awful lot of time to spend on something most people throw away.
When you look at it like that, I kind of agree with her! But they are so adorable, I just can’t help myself. And, I might just gift them with a note that suggests alternatives to tossing them…like hanging them on the Christmas tree or recycling them for next year.
The circle shaker was easy to make. The hardest part was trying to fiddle with foam tape to go around the circle. I gave up on the foam tape and die cut 5 more scalloped circles instead and layered them. Problem solved.
The rectangle shaker tag was slightly more time consuming because I couldn’t find a die that was proportional to the tag. In the end, I made the shaker portion square and called it a day. The sequins are so sparkly on both tags that I can’t help but play with them and shake them back and forth.
I think I will be making many more of these tags throughout the holiday season – I am already dreaming of a gold and silver microbead shaker!
