How to Make a Bear Shaker Box

Hi everyone! I am back with a shaker box I created using only the framed pocket from the Frame Pocket Journal Diecut by Eileen Hull. A little back story to go with this project, I had to have my Chapter One projects mailed out to Eileen and in her hands by a certain day. Well, I had this bright idea the night before I was going to mail my projects out that I could make a shaker box. I cut out what was needs but waited until morning so I could photograph and put together in morning light. Let’s just say things didn’t go the way I had planned and I did improvise of the fly just so I could get it to the post office before the day was out. Anyways, let’s get started!

I applied Adhesive Sheets to both sides of the Chipboard, placed patterned cardstock onto both sides, placed the chipboard onto the frame pocket area of the Frame Pocket Journal Diecut and run through the Diecut Machine. I cut two of the frame pockets out.

First, I glued the flap to the inside of the other frame, cut two “windows”coverings from clear packaging and adhered to the inside of each frame, placed sequins in the center of one window, added adhesive around the edges of the bear clipart and placed over the sequin.

On the back of the bear clipart I glued two felt hearts and sprinkled more sequins on top.

I cut a strip of cardstock to cover the flaps of the box and adhered over the flaps.

I glued the sentiment to the corner of the shaker, added two felt hearts and a gem onto the sentiment and adhered Ric Rac around the frame.

The cards that was in the center of the frame pocket I glued one to the bottom of the shaker box.

The back side of the shaker box I added flowers with a gem in the center of each and a leaf to each flower to finish.
