Stamp Market :: Shaker Tags

Hey there!  I've been making a TON of cards lately (which is great because I really, really need them), but I feel like I'm neglecting the tags and gift wrap.  Not to worry, I've got some stuff on the horizon that's all about them, and today, I have these adorable shaker tags for The Stamp Market.  I wanted to share another fun way to use the larger Vintage Slides die.  I'll admit that my very first thought upon seeing this was, "Oo! That would make a fun tag!"  I know, that's not what it's meant for, but I love when a product has multiple uses, don't you?

I cut out a trio of slides and before I folded them, I stamped the Jumbo Criss Cross Background stamp on them for a subtle pattern.  There's also a peek of some Color Crush Patterned Paper scraps through the window of each tag.

The windows present a great opportunity to create a shaker, but because I love using fabric on my projects, I used tulle instead of a clear acetate sheet to contain the sequins.

After adhering the slide closed, I added a few details to the outside.  I die cut 'Hi' from gold glitter paper and made some cute and colorful flowers with solid Color Crush papers and the Small Blooms dies.

Some ribbons and trim offer a bit more texture and provide a way to attach the tags to a package.

Next time you need a quick tag for a package, consider using the Vintage Slide and making a shaker with it!
