Post#156 Shaker Money Pouch using Fuse Tool

Ever since I saw the tutorial for a shaker money holder/pouch by Vicki, it has been on the top of my ‘try to make’ list…..the only thing stopping me was that I didn’t have enough sequins to fill the pouch…so in the end I just couldn’t wait any longer and this is my first ever attempt…I’m sure I will try more of these when I finally am able to buy a big bag of sequins…but here’s the first…
If you click on the link and follow the tutorial video in Vicki’s post,you will understand how easy these pouches/money holders are to create with a fuse tool….
I actually placed the die cut and stamped sentiments inside the pouch,which I later realised that I shouldn’t have…anyways,that was the front of the pouch…..on the back of the pouch I simply stamped with white stazon ink…
To decorate the pouch I have used multi-coloured rhinestones….and to close the pouch at the top I have used a wide ribbon and closed it at the top using a gold string…
Hope you liked this…..

Post#135 Merry Christmas Green & Red Shaker Card

I made this shaker card using the WRMK fuse tool and a photo pocket…the card is not bulky at all which means that it can be posted normally with no extra postage or special packaging..

I started with a piece of green cardstock 5×12″ and scored the long side at 4″ and 8″….this is so that one section gets folded in to create the backing section for the shaker pocket….which also means that the section between the two score lines would be the front of the card and had to be die cut for the shaker to show through….I also die cut and embossed a thin frame from red card stock to go around the die cut space…

Once the shaker pocket was filled with sequins,I stamped an image of a scarecrow with white ink and attached the pocket at the back of the die cut space and glued in the backing section of the card….all that was left was to attach the stamped sentiment and the card was ready…

I’m quite pleased with how this card has turned out….hope you liked it too…
