Shake It Up For Christmas

Dee Moran is back with another fun idea for Christmas!  This elfish shaker tin could hold small treats for teacher or office gifts.  Use them for stocking stuffers or to show appreciation to the mailman, paperboy, hairdresser,….  Everyone would love to receive this playful tin and it’s so quick and easy to make!

Create the shaker lidTrace the lid over a pre-stamped and colored image. Cut just inside the lines. Do one more the same size with colored card stock.

Line the inside of the lid with double sided foam tape. Remove tape liner and pour in clear micro beads, then adhere circle with image and glue down the colored card stock circle over the top to finish the inside.

With ¼” O’So sticky tape….diagonally line and cut around the lid. Remover liner on every other one and add white beads. Remove liner on the rest and adhere the red beads.
