Shaker Ornaments 2016

December 31, 2016

I don’t know how it happened or how I survived, but I did. I have made it through another December. The kiddos had a great holiday season with visits to Santa, plays, gatherings with family and friends, baking sessions, and many gifts to open. My poor blog has been much neglected this month. I am taking this last day of 2016 to post everything I made in December. The details may be scarce but at least there are pictures.

I made special shaker tags for each of my children, my husband, and my grandmother this year.

This is the tag for my husband. I love the mistletoe paper and the cute little squirrel couple.

This is the tag for my daughter. She loves the mermaids from Lawn Fawn.

This is the tag for my son. I used a lot of silver embossing powder on this tag to make things look metallic. I love the gear ornaments on the tree.

This is the tag for my grandmother. She loves music. The penguins are supposed to represent my children.

 

Details

Extra Details: I started each tag by die cutting all of the pieces I would need: a patterned paper frame, a piece of acetate, two fun foam frames, and one backer piece from heavy water color paper. I created my scenes on the water color pieces. I did some heat embossing and fussy cutting. I used water color pencils to add color to everything.

Then, I created my shaker box. I glued the acetate to the back of the patterned paper frame and then glued both layers of fun foam. Once those were dry, I added sequins and glued on the scenes.

As a final touch, I added some twine and green jingle bells. I still felt that the tags need something, so I added a red bow to each.
