National Craft Month Blog Hop

National Craft Month

I’m welcoming March in with sunshine, blog hops and cute projects using products from the Occasions catalog! March is also National Craft Month, who knew?! I have a fun Shaker Gift Tag to share today as I join in on Janet Wakeland’s National Craft Month Blog Hop! Make sure to hop through to the other blogs and see what everyone else has created!

My shaker gift tag features the Tutti-Frutti 6×6 designer series paper and the Tutti-Frutti adhesive backed sequins. I chose this really cheerful dragonfruit paper because I just love Berry Burst and Pool Party together!

I started with Thick Whisper White card stock and cut 2 strips of 5 1/2″ by 2″. I also cut the 6×6 designer series paper (DSP) down to the same size. Then I used the Tag Topper Punch on all three sheets. Next I used liquid multipurpose glue (aka Tombow my favorite!) to adhere the designer series paper to one of the Whisper White pieces.

Time to punch the shaker window! I used the new 1 3/8″ scallop circle punch to create the shaker window in the tag that has the DSP adhered to the top. My window sheet was cut to 1 7/8″ by 1 7/8″ and I adhered it with some Tear Tape.

Next I added the foam adhesive strips to make a border around the punched window and the rest of the tag. The fun part…. adding the shaker goodies inside! I used a combination of some Fimo clay fruit slices that looked like dragonfruit (handpicked from my fruit assortment) and some Metallic Sequin.

Time to take the backing off the foam strips and add the other Thick Whisper White tag to the back. I used Thick Whisper White so my tag was sturdy.


Let’s add some stamping! I used the sentiment “You’re SWEET” from the Cool Treats stamp set. I stamped it in Berry Burst (My favorite In-Color right now!!). Then I just cut it down… using my paper snips. the edges are not all straight but I like this look sometimes for sentiments. I added them to the tag with Stampin’ Dimensional.

Don’t forget to add some ribbon to the top of the tag! I used the very pretty Pool Party Shimmer ribbon! I tied it together using solid Basic Black baker’s twine.

Bling Time!! I kept the bling to only a few Tutti-Frutti adhesive backed sequins that coordinate with the designer series paper. Now looking back I should have added some Wink of Stella! hehe
