Well, I’m back with an adorable little Fall shaker box. I just love how it turned out. Very festive for candy favors at your next holiday party. The Holly Days collection by Fleurette Bloom Designs has some of the cutest gift giving elements, but I wanted to make an Autumn themed shaker box. Using the Holly and Bow box, I broke the holly out of the front panel within the eCal software and replaced it with one of the leaves from the Harvest Happenings- Leaf card SVG. Now it’s ready for Fall!
It is my first time making a shaker box with glitter. Usually, I just use sequins. I was a little worried it would leak out everywhere. So, I tried something different than the normal foam adhesive most people use. What I decided to do was build up my shapes. I cut out five each of the front panel leaf shapes and glued just four of them together to make the well for the glitter.
I then glued the stencil to the panel base. Once it was nice and dry, I put in a few sequins and a touch of glitter. Since the cut-out isn’t that deep, it keeps the sequins all turned facing up. A piece of acetate was glued between the base and last cut out. It helps keep movement to a minimum. Which is what I was looking for.
That’s all the craftiness I have for you guys today. I hope you liked my take on an Autumn Shaker box. Don’t forget to leave a comment letting me know! 😉 Oh, and come back soon and have a very crafty day!
