Holiday Christmas Tree Shaker

Hello! It's Jennifer and I'm on the blog to share one of the Mini Shakers I  decorated for Christmas!  Using the Mini Christmas Tree Shaker I created a fun ornament to hang on our tree!  And I'm going to show you the techniques I  used!


Taking the chipboard base and my 3-in-1 Beacon Adhesive, I  adhered my patterned paper to the front of the tree.  I  then used scissors and an x-acto knife to trim excess paper. 


I  next used my sanding tool to make sure my paper is flush with the chipboard.  


Now I  was ready to embellish the front of my Shaker. Using the front chipboard frame, I  applied three coats of white acrylic paint and set aside to dry.


Next step is to assemble the shaker!  Again using my 3-in-1 Beacon Adhesive I  adhered two of the chipboard frames.  Before adhering the acrylic piece, I  placed a small amount of sequins in the center of the tree.   Using a dryer sheet or anti-static sachet prior to affixing your acrylic is helpful. 


The last step I  did was use some glitter green embossing powder on my front chipboard frame!  This is my go to technique for dressing up my chipboard!


Once I   had my shaker put together, I  applied a layer of paint around the edges to give it a "snowy" look.  I  then added a metal sentiment and bakers twine around the center. 


Last, I  adhered ribbon to the back of my shaker so it can hang on the tree!  I also added a metal safety pin and token to embellish!
