Butterfly Shaker Clip with Clear Scraps~

Hi, Connie here with a fun project using the Butterfly Shaker by Clear Scraps.  My inspiration was using the shaker images in a different way that could double as a teacher's gift.  I came up with a clip, for all those papers they grade. Take a look~

The Clear Scraps store has over 25 shapes of shakers.  Rumor has it, more are on the way:)  I constructed the shaker with pattern paper on the inside and pattern paper on the outside frame.  I used Beacon 3-IN-1 to adhere the shaker together.

The inside has Glamour sequins by Clear Scraps.  They matched beautifully.  I was prepared to use the entire bag of sequins, but a little goes along way.  Once the sequins are put in the shaker the frame was adhered and then let it rest.  For about 30 minutes.  I had a few sequins stick to the side.  The object is to have them in the middle so they shake around.

The side was embellished with buttons and flowers.  Beacon Quick Grip worked great, to adhere the embellishments to the front of the shaker.

Last adhere a cloths pin to the back of the  Butterfly Shaker and then adhere a strong magnet to back of the cloths pin.  Great for refrigerator art !!!
