3" x 3" Circle Shaker - using Tab Punch






















I saw a post on SCS for using the Round Tab Punch to make a circle in your card stock and I thought it would be great for making Circle Shaker Cards.

Directions for the Double Pouch Bag can be found here.

3"x 3" Circle Shaker Cards



















Supplies:
Round Tab Punch
Card Stock - 3" x 3"
Acetate 2 3/4" x 2 3/4"
Beads
Stamped Image - cut to 2 3/4" x 2 3/4"
Foam Tape
6" x 3" piece of card stock - folded to 3" x 3"






















Push your Round Tab Punch in as far as it will go on your 3" x 3" card stock, and punch
























Rotate your card stock and punch again with the Round Tab Punch.
Trim your card stock to 2 3/4" x 2 3/4"



















Adhere your acetate to your card stock with snail, and swipe with the embossing buddy, so your beads don't stick.






















Place your foam tape around your opening, being sure that the ends meet.






















Place a small amount of beads on the acetate. Gently remove the backing from the tape, being careful not to let any beads get on the adhesive.




















Place your stamped image piece, stamped side down, so that it sticks to the foam tape. Press securely in place. Adhere to base card. (as shown in top photo)





















On my bag - I also made Faux Brads
















How to make Faux Brads

Run your card stock through your xyron. Punch with the double circle punch. Remove paper backing and adhere where you'd like you faux brads to be. Place Crystal Effects or Ranger Glossy Accents over the faux brads, let dry.

These cards are so cute! I'm glad you liked the Double Pocket bag tutorial. Your bag is awesome. I wish I'd have thought to add decoration with the round tab punch. Great idea.

I love the Shaker card tutorial. I will have to try this out as well.
