Multi-Section Shaker Card

Hi there fellow KnK-ers!

Usually shaker cards are squares or circles so that adding the foam tape walls will be as easy as possible, but what if we build up our walls with shapes cut from our KnK machines? We can have any shape of shaker card we like but we could also chose to have more than one cavity to fill with different shaker elements.

Here is a card I made for my Mum’s Birthday. I chose 3 different colours of sequins to match my patterned paper but the fun thing is, the sequins will never get mixed together as they are within their own section:

These are the Materials I used:

These are the Zing Settings I used:

  • Blade = Standard
  • Blade Height = 25 post-it notes
  • Offset = 0.30
  • Speed = 10
  • Force =  100
  • Passes = 1


Pic 1. Below are the pieces you will need to cut to complete your shaker card. You will need to cut your card base once, then cut the solid Mum/Mom piece once in acetate and once in your chosen patterned paper. You will also need to cut the Mum/Mom outline once in the same cardstock as your card base then cut it several times to build your shaker walls, I cut 9 of these for my card:

Pic 2. Glue your front outline onto your acetate piece and set it aside to dry. Next, adhere your other outline pieces one by one on top of your patterned piece using wet glue so you have a little wiggle time:

Pic 3. Fill each section with different coloured sequins, you could use glitter, small beads or confetti instead. The trick is not to add to much:

Pic 4. To seal your shaker sections, carefully add glue to the top of your shaker walls and pop your acetate panel into place:
