Hey guys, Sabrina here! I wanted to show you all how to create a quick and fun pocket shaker with items you might already in your crafting collection which means there will be no need to run out to Target or Michael’s for supplies. Let’s jump right into this!
Here is what I used:
First thing you are going to do after you gather all of your materials is to grab any ephemera that you want to use and if you don’t have any just grab a piece of design paper and start cutting out shapes or images. I will be using the PopFizzPaper ‘Picture This’ planner kit. I went ahead and cut out a few items that I wanted to place inside of my shaker pocket; a camera, a battery, film strip, and three cute hearts. I even hole punched the little hearts that came on the back of the description cardboard to show that if you don’t have sequins you can still create your own shaker happiness.
I wanted to add a little more thickness behind my design paper cut outs so cut and glued my cut out onto a thicker cardstock. Then cut again. I used the Tombow tape runner that came in the kit and may I add that runner is so amazing! It’s easy to use and the glue glides on so smoothly. I then cut out a piece of laminated sheet [you can cut and use a pocket protector sheet also] and made it large enough to fit just the middle of my journaling card. Feel free to make to make the entire journaling card a pocket shaker if you want, I just wanted to focus the shaker at the center of my card.
Next grab everything; all your cut outs and ephemera, stickers, sequins, washi and your tape runner or glue. I put everything in the center of my journaling card then grabbed my Tombow tape runner and my piece of laminated sheet and added a line of tape around the back side of the laminated sheet. Then placed that right on top of all my shaker goodies. Press down to ensure its firmly secured and then it’s onto the decorating! Yay!
The photo washi tape that came in the PFP August Planner Kit has to be one of my favorite washi’s to date! I added it to the top and bottom of the center frame along with some matching decorative stickers also from the August planner kit. Adding a camera, batteries and puffy heart stickers to the top and bottom corners just emphasized the cuteness even more. Lastly, hole punch that left side or stick it onto a coil bookmark and your pocket shaker dashboard is complete! Wasn’t that just simple and so much fun? Now it’s your turn!
