Twelve Days of Christmas Day Four: Shaker Tag Ornament

Happy Day Four of the Twelve Days of Christmas!!  Today I have a little shaker tag that I plan on using as an ornament on my tree.  Ever since Betsy Veldman made this card, I have been dying to try out a shaker tag for myself! Betsy is so amazing and she inspires me beyond measure!  Thank you Betsy for the inspiration!!
To make the shaker tag:

  1. Cut out 5 tags- one out of patterned paper, one out of cream paper, one out of clear cardstock and two out of chipboard.  
  2. Cut the centers out of all the tags except the base tag.  
  3. Glue together the 2 chipboard tags.
  4. Stamp the cream base tag with City Scene stamps and adhere it to the back side of the chipboard layers. 
  5.  Add some glitter dots with the stamp set using sticky embossing powder and sprinkled it with glitter.  
  6. Add some glitter to the inside and then adhere the clear cardstock tag on top of the chipboard tags and seal.
  7. Cover with patterned paper.
 I love to make things!  It just makes my heart happy and so I thought I would leave you with this inspiring word:

Kristii--I am so in love with this shaker tag you made. And, your instructions make it sound so easy, but I tell you I struggle with how to layer everything and keep all the 'shakey stuff' inside. I especially like the stuff you added to the outside. It just adds that extra something to take this project to the next level.
