Frosty Shaker tag or ornament
I love to embellish gift bags as well as making ornaments and today's creation can be used for either. I first die cut the pretty window frame using mirrored cardstock, and then made it into a shaker. The first thing was to trace the shape, and it out with cardstock that I could use my Copics on. Using the transparency of the stamped image that comes with the set, I arranged the rose cluster where I could see them peeking through the window. I lined up the stamp where the picture was and then stamped exactly where I wanted to with my MISTI. Coloring is so relaxing and I used the mood board to choose my colors. The stamp I chose was the Kennedy Grace Creations Splendid Rose stamp set. Afterward, I cut a piece of transparency to the size of the window shape by tracing with a marker and then fussy cutting it out. I dusted it with the powder tool so as to keep it from having static cling with the sequins. I then cut the foam tape to go around the edge of the shape and made two layers so that it was thick so the sequins could bounce around more. Using the Crystal Lacquer to ensure that the frame stayed tightly glued, I then put Kennedy Grace Creations Frozen Sequins in and adhered all of the layers. Once everything was dry, I adhere a piece of blingy string to the back. Viola!
