Shaker Envelope Tags

Yup, I'm still making shaker tags, but I figured out a simple way to make them. I think this idea is mine, but I read so many blogs and magazines that it maybe a 'borrowed' idea. Anyway, I started with a small colored envelope which I carefully took apart. I used a Spellbinder oval die to cut a hole to accommodate the penguin stamp image ( Stampendous clear set). Next, I taped a piece of acetate behind the oval window and stamped the words on the outside corner of the envelope. After stamping and coloring the penguin on white card stock, I cut the card stock to fit in the re-assembled (with Merikan tape) envelope. I added white Flower Soft and MS snow glitter between the acetate and penguin image before sealing up the envelope. I punched a hole in the envelope then added yarn ties and stickers. The back of the shaker envelope tag was covered with a scrap of printed card stock to make space for writing a message. You might want to suggest that the tag be recycled for next year's tag by covering up the writing on the back. This type of shaker envelope can be easily applied onto a card for other occasions. Happy Holiday Crafting!


Here are more envelope shaker tags made with a Stampendous elf stamp and gold mylar-like beads (Sierra Pacific). Thanks for visiting and come back soon!
