Clear Scraps Mini Shaker Angel Tutorial

Hello friends!  Today I'm sharing a fun little project using the Clear Scraps Mini Shaker Angel.
This little shaker  can be used in several different ways,  an ornament or an embellishment or on a card,
layout or just about anything you want. I gave one to one of my grand kids and she loved it!
Today I'm going to show you how to make this quick easy project.
To start remove the it from the packaging and you're going to notice it comes in 5 different pieces.
The first piece is the solid backing of the shaker.  You're going to start with this piece.  Adhere the
patterned paper of choice to the back piece and trim off the access.  next remove the film from the acrylic piece.
Adhere the second chipboard piece to the solid back of the shaker.
The next step is to adhere the second chipboard piece to the second, building them up to create a
hollow area for your sequins, beads or whatever you decide to add to your shaker.

The next step is to add your fun shaker pieces.  I added sequins and seed beads.
Now it's time for your clear Acrylic piece.  I adhered this piece using Beacons 3-in-1.  It holds the
pieces together  with no worries of it coming apart.  On top of the acrylic piece you will adhere your final
chipboard piece.
Time to add the finishing touches.  I used chalk ink to color the chipboard and then embossed with embossing powder.
Embossing powder is optional.  This will have do be done carefully as it will melt the acrylic if it gets too hot.  If you are
more comfortable, you can do this stem before you adhere the final piece onto the acrylic.
When you are finished you can embellish as you please.  I simply added a piece of ribbon
and a flower.
