Oh Betsy those tags!!!! They are so clever! No one who receives one of these beauties will want to put them in the recycling pile after Christmas. They'll be kept for ever. I LOVE them!!!

How fun are those shaker tags. I love your ideas because they help me to think out of the box. Making tags this year for the first time will be a blast! Thanks for sharing your talents.

Just Beautiful Betsy! You are such a sweet heart to have done a photo tutorial, which I will be using this holiday season. What great tips with the foam, thank you so much. I get foam on the roll because it's what Wal-mart has. LOL I wish I lived in town where the craft stores are. I love all of your projects and these shaker tags are wonderful! The blue and red contrast so nicely together with the white glitters and embossing.

Connie C.

Wow. Just WOW! Awesome project Betsy!

Thank you thank you thank you for this awesome step by step tutorial Betsy! I have made so many shakers that end up in disaster and that foam tape tip is the smartest tip I have ever heard of. You tags and cards are so stunning and CASEable too.

Renee VanEpps

Thanks for the tips on the adhesive, I will most definitely be buying mine like this now.. hate those tiny release papers! Beautiful card :)

Rebecca Ednie

I also buy sheets of foam and die cut the shape I need for shakers and eliminate the need for foam strips all together. You can get them from Jody Morrow. Just google her. If I don't have the exact die shapes for the outer frame and window, I just trace my layers and cut it out myself a bit smaller than shapes I'm using.

Beth Bo.

Wow! I saw these tags on Nichole's blog and had to come see how you did them. Beautiful!


Gorgeous, so happy to see the re-imergence of shaker type projects! Your tags and matching card are just beautifully done :)

Kathy Mc
