Shaker Box Technique Page

This technique page is number 18 of 20!! Are you getting excited??? This second set is almost finished!!! The next two pages should go faster now that I am not so busy with holiday stuff!!!

Stamp your image on card stock and color it in. Cut your piece to the desired size. What ever size your window is for your shaker box you need a piece of acetate to cover it.

Run some double sided adhesive around the parameter on the back side. If your acetate is the same size as the window box then you will need to make sure the acetate has adhesive on the edges to seal in the micro beads.

Once the tape is exposed you will want to add your micro beads. Just pour a little of them in the center of the acetate. Then cover the area with your stamped and colored image. You may want to hover over it to get a better view so it lines up evenly on all edges.

Turn it over and have a look at it!!! Cute, isn't it? Now add some double sided tape to the shaker box and affix it to your card or scrapbook page. You can add other small objects or sand from your favorite vacation spot. Use your imagination!

I do have the first set of technique pages for sale on CD. You can find it on my web store. You can print them out, cut them at 5-3/4" x 5-3/4" and decorate away. They make great class tools and are a great way for you to do a technique club!

The original first set is in the process of being redone so I will be posting the completed first set of 20 pages in a month or two. I had a lot of requests for that first set so I thought I'd better make more. Please be patient they are coming!!!

Thanks SO much for visiting,

I read the new technique page but was a bit confused. Where is the foam tape used as opposed to regular double-sided adhesive? I have trouble visualizing and really need very specific directions. Were there two heart images with one of them having the acetate window? Thanks for the help.

Oh yay, so glad you are recreating the Set #1 of your Technique Pages. I should have read this whole post before I emailed you today though! Looking forward to Set #2 as well!
