Envelope Shaker Tags with The Greeting Farm

Good Monday everyone!  Over the summer, I was lucky to get a package from the folks over at the The Greeting Farm and I just wanted to share a couple tags I made with the  Always a Party and Make a Wish clear stamps and coordinating dies sets.  Aren't these little bears the cutest?  


The Always a Party set has the cutest little bear family, and I'm especially smitten with the little boy bear and little girl bear stamps.  So I paired them up with some cupcakes and banners from the Make a Wish  set.  Don't they all look like they belong together?  Of course, I could have left the tags just as they were here...


But I wanted to dress them up just a bit more.  I've used my Fuse tool to make a shaker before (check it out here), but this time I wanted to make an envelope shaker.  I placed my tag inside of a page protector like so...


Then I took the Fuse tool and the ruler and created a seal down both sides of the tag.  [FYI, I used the "fuse" tip as opposed to the seal tip for the Fuse tool.  It's a matter of personal preference, but I like that stitched look.]  I left the top open so I could fill the shaker with various types of sequins and glitter.  


Then I sealed the top of the tag (followed along the shape of the top of the tag).  This was so much fun!  

That's it for me today!  Thanks for stopping by today and thanks to The Greeting Farm for the chance to work with such fun stamps and dies!  BTW, if you stop by and pick up anything at The Greeting Farm, use the code "JJB10" for 10% off. 

XOXO,
