Fabulous Fundamental: Using Sequins

If you have peeked into the March Scrap Shotz Monthly kit, you would have found the Teresa Collins package of sequins. When I first saw the sequins, I was intrigued by the awesome colours and the different sizes and sheen of them. I love the sequins - there just seems to be no end on what you can use them for.

I'd like to share one use: use them in a Shaker Card. Here is mine below...

Supplies:  Bazzill (cardstock); BoBunny (pattern paper); Teresa Collins (sequins); glitter (source unknown); Taylored Expressions (layered banners); stamped sentiment (source unknown)

Inside my star-shaped shaker "box" are sequins and some random star shaped glitter from my daughter's craft box.  You could have also highlighted the polka-dotted motif of the pattern paper by adhering some the sequins but I am going to save that for another post on sequins soon!

The layered sentiment was created using the Taylored Expressions banner die. They are available by order from Sandy. (Like the sequins I have another post scheduled on how to use the layered banner dies from Taylored expressions.)

Thanks for dropping by - I would love to hear how you are using your sequins too!

I've never made a shaker card before, I love how this looks!

That's a great idea! I use sequins on cards instead of brads because they are light and easy to mail. I like the subtle shine of them.
