Tami here on the Clear Scraps Blog today with a scrapbook layout to share with you.
Clear Scraps Mini Shakers are a fun addition to your scrapbook pages. They come in all sorts of themes and designs so you are sure to find one that coordinates with your layout.
Here I used the Ice Cream Mini Shaker on this summer themed layout...
Here is a closeup pic of the shaker...
I used a layer from the shaker to trace the designs of all 3 layers of the ice cream on different printed papers. I cut out the designs slightly outside the drawn lines, then adhered them on the backer of the shaker. I also erased the pencil lines.
I painted the ice cream portion of the top layer of the shaker with white paint. For the cone, I traced around the cone part of the shaker onto some light brown cardstock, then cut it out. I added diagonal lines to make it look like a waffle cone. I adhered the cardstock to the painted layer, then used then Sanding Stick to remove the excess paper from around the edges.
To assemble, I adhered the 2 layers to the base. Then it was time to fill up the shaker! I used small plastic beads in different colors. Once filled, it was time to finish the assembly. I removed the protective film from one side of the acrylic piece and adhered that side down to the stack. Next, I removed the film from the other side and adhered the painted top layer. I like to remove the film one side at a time to help protect the other side from adhesive or fingerprints while I'm adhering it.
To make your page really interactive, consider using velcro to attach the shaker to the OUTSIDE of the page protector. That way it can be removed and shaken. Also something fun to do when attaching it to a card or gift tag. You could even add a magnet to the back so the shaker could be removed and reused.
