Autumn Leaves Shaker Tag

Shaker tags are fun to create because of what is behind the aperture. You can fill it with anything you like for a special effect.



Fall Leaves Shaker Tags

For this project you will need:

- tag shapes of your choice
- orange textured cardstock
- scrapbook paper matching cardstock
- a piece of cardboard (like a cereal box)
- clear acetate foil
- clear tape
- 3-D foam pads or 3-D foam tape
- assorted micro-beads
- iridescent flakes
- small hole puncher
- decorative matching piece of fiber ribbon
- Cuttlebug machine or die cutting machine of your choice
- Cuttlebug die cut leaves set (set of 4 leaves) or leaf punches/ dies of your choice
- stick glue


1. Adhere your cardstock to the original tag.

2. Glue the scrapbook paper to the cardboard, making sure the printed side of the scrapbook paper is facing upwards. Use the tag and trace the shape onto scrapbook paper and cut out. Set aside until later.

3. Die cut leaf shape out of the bottom third of the orginal tag.

4. Turn the tag over now so that the front is facing the table.

5. Cut a square of acetate large enough to cover the opening and secure this onto the backside of the tag. Here you have the original tag with the cut out leaf (you are seeing the backside of it), the piece of acetate and the backside which is the cardboard covered with the piece of scrapbook paper.

7. Enclose the leaf cut out with 3-D foam pads or cut pieces of 3-D foam tape. This will leave a tub to fill with beads. Make sure there are no openings or gaps between the foam pieces. (Otherwise you will lose the beads). Fill inside area between the foam pads with beads and flakes.

8. Pull of protective papers of the foam tape. Now take the scrapbook paper tag shape you created in step two, line it up over the tag and adhere it now to the backside of the tag with the scrapbook paper side facing down. This will cover the beaded area and enclose them.

9. Turn your tag over and now you can shake the beads.

10. Punch a hole at the top of the tag and insert a piece of decorative fiber for hanging.
