Shaker Gift Tag… and a winner.

Hello, and a very happy Monday to you. I hope you had a great weekend - I certainly did!
Today I have a tag and photo tutorial over on the Hero Arts blog. It features the sweet Elves by Lia stamp set. Aren't these little guys just adorable?

I added sequins and beads from my Snowdrift and Sparkle and Shine Shaker Selections, MFT patterned paper, and a sentiment from Peace & Joy. TIP - if you add beads as well as sequins, the beads create a sort of hollow behind the acetate which allows the sequins to move about more freely.

Finally, I added a white tag on the back to cover up the stitching and add more messages, all from the Peace & Joy set :)

Love it Lucy - love how you add the beads to create movement for the sequins. Neat idea.

Always love your signature stitching Lucy. I actually bought a sewing machine because of it but then got pregnant and started making wash cloths and blankets instead!! Going to attempt some card sewing again soon-what are the best settings to use?

Darling shaker tag! And thanks so much for the tip about adding the beads. So simple, so clever, and what a difference in shake-ability! :-)
