Mini Shaker Stockings

Hello! It's Jennifer and I'm on the blog today to share some fun techniques I used on the new Mini Shaker Stockings!  The Mini Shakers are so fun to work with and you have a large variety of shapes to choose from!  Each shaker comes with 1 chipboard back, 3 chip forms, and 1 acrylic divider.  


Before beginning to embellish my shaker, I painted the chipboard pieces with white acrylic paint.


Once allowing the paint to dry, I was ready to start my first shaker!  An easy way to add some bling to your chipboard is using embossing ink and powder!  I simply applied my ink pad directly to the surface of the shaker then sprinkled with glitter embossing powder.


Remove the excess embossing powder and apply heat to set!


I then assembled my pieces by adhering the chip forms to the front and back of the acrylic divider.  


Now you are free to embellish your Shaker! I adhered a few sequins as well as added die cuts from a Christmas line.


For my second Shaker, I covered the chipboard back with patterned paper with a vellum overlay. I then used my 6 inch Nordic Snowflake Mascil with metallic texture paste to add some sparkle to the vellum! You definitely need to allow ample drying time before going on to the next step. Also, your vellum may bubble but once dry, it will smooth out.


I added pieces of die cuts and flair as well as a few enamel dots to accent my Shaker!



Thank you for stopping by today! Check out the selection of Shakers at the Clear Scraps shop! Have a great day!
