Technique Tuesday – Shaker Tags

Hello and welcome back to the blog, it is Hetty with you today sharing my very first Technique Tuesday blog post.

Today I would like to share with you some shaker tags using the cute Peppermint Kisses collection.

Products Used:
Papers: Peppermint Kisses Collection: PP1075 Paper Pad|CT969 Collectables|
KC Products: Permanent Black Kaiser Ink|Kaiser Christmas Sentiment Stamps|Kaiser pocket pages or album inserts|Kaiser Die Cut Machine|Kaiser White Cardstock|
Other: Fuse Tool|Punch Tool|Tag Dies|Eyelets|Glitter|Thread|Washi Tape|

Start by die cutting to large tags from your white cardstock.

Next cut large tag from chosen printed paper from the paper pad and lay the smaller tag in the middle of the big one as seen in photo below.

You should now have something like this:

Glue the two white tags back to back (I like to use two to for sturdiness) add the ‘from – to’ sentiment to the back of the white tag.

Glue the printed front onto the front of the white tag and you now should have something like this:

Next grab your pocket page or album insert and add your large tag on the top. Add some washi tape to hold it in place.

Run your fuse tool along the sides and the bottom of the tag but not the top sides just yet as you need to insert your tag first.

Trim closely to the seam but leave a big gap at the top. You should now have something looking like this:

Insert your tag and add other embellishments like glitter and whatever else you would like to add to your shaker tag.

Now add the die back on top and line it up so you can finish the top edges.

Trim off excess plastic. Punch a whole through the top, add an eyelet and some ribbon or thread. Embellish the outside with your favourite pieces from the collectables range.

That is it, you are done. I hope you liked this tutorial. These tags are so fun to make and the best part is they are reusable. Write on the back with a permanent marker and it wipes off again easily with some methylated spirits or something similar.

I made a special display box so I could store my cards, gift cards and tags. Such a cute range, perfect for kids and kids at heart.

That is it for me today – Happy Crafting!

Until next time…..

  1. Hi, this is such a cute idea. But i’m having trouble understanding the instructions where you place the die over the nearly finished tag, to finish the top. You don’t die cut it right….so what are you doing with the die there? Maybe I should youtube how the fuse tool works…that might give me a better picture. But i’m gonona give this a go. Thanks for the beautiful inspiration.

  2. Hi Laura, thanks heaps for your lovely comment. Once you have filled your tag with pretty things you place the die back on the tag to run along the top part with the fuse tool, the part you left open/unsealed because you needed to fill it. So all you are doing is sealing the whole tag up. Hope this makes sense, thanks Hetty 🙂
