I want to do St Patrick day cards for my family. I want to use shamrocks in a shaker type thing. I don't have any idea on how to go about this. Any help would be wonderful.
I have made small shakers out of the window of an envelope, the kind that a bill comes in. Just cut around the window leaving a little white. Glue part of the rim of the window down, pour in whatever you're using for the shaking then glue down the rest.
I would probably use foam board. Cut out the inner and outer shape you want, then put a piece of transparency paper over the top to serve as your "glass" on your window. Turn it upside down, fill it, put glue around the edges then put your paper on it and turn it right side up again.
Thanks, Both sound like great ideas.
