Confetti Shaker Card How-To

I'm guest blogging today on Paper Crafts Connection & have a fun & easy tutorial to share.

I made this shaker card filled with paper confetti:

            Pin It


These are really easy to make.  I first cut out an image on the front of the card using my Silhouette.  If you don't have a silhouette, try using a metal die or hand-held punch for a similar effect.  I also cut out a piece of patterned paper slightly smaller than my card front.


I used a couple of different heart punches and filled a tiny Ziploc baggie with various shades of paper.



I then taped the baggie to the inside of my card.


To conceal the baggie, I adhered a piece of patterned paper to the inside of my card.
