Shaker Tag

Happy Friday!

Hey Everyone, it's Ruthie from September Ninth Designs. This is my official first post as a "Twine-ista" and I am super excited to be a part of this years dt! This month, here on the blog, all the Twine-ista's will be sharing projects with a "something new" theme. That "something new"can be a new technique, new color of twine, new product from the store, or a new tool that we use while making our project.

The last six months are so I have been obsessed with shaker cards, but sadly, I have yet to make one. I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to get my "shaker" groove on! :)  I decided on making a Valentine's shaker tag. It was pretty easy. If you are wondering how they are made, here's a great tutorial.
I didn't have the right color sequins, to put in the "shaker"part, so I made my own with three tiny heart dies that I have. I was going to add some tiny beads as well, but I was so excited to see the "shaker" in action, that I forgot to add them. LOL... oh well, next time.

I added some Strawberry Cupcake twine to the top of the tag and also around the bottom, to attach the heart.
Paper: DCWV & Recolletions
My Creative Time Products:
4x4 Journal Die + More
Stitched Doily Die

Teeny Tags Layering Dies

 Scallop & Stitched Circle Die

I used the Strawberry Cupcake twine. You can find it, a ton of other colors, and lots of fun packaging in the Bella Creationz store.

Don't forget to stop back by tomorrow for more "something new" inspiration! 

I hope you have a wonderful day!
