As all of us planner girls are aware, shaker cards are the bomb dot com! Some are expensive or hard to customize, but not anymore. With this simple DIY tutorial, you will be on your way to shaking up your planner soon! I put mine in my Happy Planner!
To start, you are going to need the perfume design, clear album sheets, glitter or sequins, a fuse tool, a paper cutter or scissors, and a hole punch of your choice. To download the perfume image, click here. You will have to enter your email, but the file will be sent to you shortly!
I started by trimming the perfume picture to the size I liked then popping it into my album filler. My sheets are actually Project Life pockets. I like these because there is a little clear flap that you can (and should) leave out and use at the very end to punch your holes. I then used my fuse tool along the top of the picture so that just one side would be exposed. This creates the shaker card pocket and leaves a hole to fill with goodies.
Next up I chose my first item to add to the card – silver and gold sequins. These will be so pretty in the shaker card.
These are the three sequins and glitter options I am going to use. They will look beautiful with the perfume bottle colors.
Filling the pocket can be easy – once you get the hang of it! Fill it as much as you’d like, but not too much. That will make the pocket thick.
This is what it should look like when you have all your options in there. The shaker card is coming along nicely!!!
For the final step you are going to seal the open side with your fuser and then hole punch the little flap you left. If you don’t have a punch for your Happy Planner, I go over an easy way to make your own punch in this post.
Here is your final result!!! I recommend going over your fused lines a time or two to ensure glitter won’t fall out.
Pop your new shaker card into your planner and you now have a beautiful shaker card to look at all the time!
