This project is a great way to save and display ephemera from your events: confetti from the wedding, tickets from the concert, etc. Your shaker box can also just be plain, old-fashioned decorative.
Here's what you need to get started: double-sided foam tape, punch, cardstock, patterned paper, scissors, clear plastic, large punch and fill. The fill can be confetti, bead, punchies or whatever strikes your fancy.
Cut a square from cardstock and cut out the centre using scissors or a punch. Cut a piece of clear plastic the same size as the square and adhere them together. If you don't think you have any clear plastic just check around the house. I bet you find some clear plastic packaging on something like . . . um . . . new scrapbooking supplies.
Cut the square of patterned paper large than the cardstock.
Put foam tape on the back of the cardstock piece.
Pour in your fill. I chose shiny black micro beads. Centre the patterned paper over the filled cardstock and press firmly to seal.
Enjoy! I'd love to see your finished project.
