My "shaker frame" is basically the same as a "shaker card", but I thought you might enjoy a tutorial. So here goes...
The supplies: small frame (mine is metal), Stazon, Stampin' Dimensionals (the outer parts), cardstock, and Window Sheets (SU! no longer carries these, but you can use acetate), Microbeads, and your favorite stamp set. I'm using good ol' Frosty.
Cut your cardstock to fit your frame (I use the paper that is in the frame for measurements). Stamp your image in the center and color as desired. I used Blender Pens to color Frosty. Set aside.
Since my frame is metal, I used White Stazon to stamp one of the snowflakes from Snowflurries. Be careful with metal, it is easy for the stamp to slip.
Frame is finished. Set aside.
Next, adhere the outer strips from the sheets of Stampin' Dimensionals to your piece of acetate (should be the same size as your stamped cardstock). The outer strips are PERFECT to use for shaker cards and frames--now you're not wasting any of the Stampin' Dimensionals! Make sure you don't have any open space so that the Microbeads don't "escape".
Once all four sides have Stampin' Dimensionals, pour in the desired amount of Microbeads. Microbeads are akin to Jumping Beans--they "jump" everywhere! So pour carefully!
Next, carefully, pull the backing off your Stampin' Dimensionals.
Now, place your stamped cardstock face down onto the Stampin' Dimensionals.
Your piece should look like this.
Put your cardstock/acetate piece in the frame and you're done! Shake your frame and you'll see the Microbeads "shake". Remember, you can do this same concept with a card or any other project. Enjoy!!
