Hi, Connie here with the Pumpkin Wood Accordion Shaker Album by Clear Scraps.  What a fun product to create with.  Loved using the Pumpkin Shaker Album for recipes~yes, it worked great!!!
Take a look~

The back  of the front cover was covered with pattern paper.  The top frame is painted with a thinned out orange acrylic paint.  The stem is painted with brown acrylic paint.  Let all the paint dry and then sand the front frame for a distressed look.  The shaker part has sequins and buttons in it for some sparkle. All layers are glued together and then set aside to dry.  The front frame was then sealed with an acrylic mat sealer.  Looks harder than it is !!!  So easy~

The script "Family" word is embossed with some chunky embossing powder.  It looks gold in the photo but is more of a sand color.  Beacon adhesive was used to adhere the embellishments to the front of the Pumpkin Shaker Album.

The inside pages were painted with watered down acrylic paint and then sanded for that distress look.  I used vintage library card envelopes to hold the recipes in.  The fronts of the envelopes are decorated with stickers.  The album is tied together with jute string.  Super cute and tons of fun!!!
