How to make a Egg-stra Special Shaker Tag

Supplies Used:

  • Stamps and Dies (from the Maker’s Movement)
  • Die Cut Machine
  • Clear Acetate Sheets
  • Double Sided Craft Foam
  • Black Ink
  • Art Markers
  • Deflecto Expandable Marker Accordion
  • Heavyweight Watercolor Paper
  • Decorative Scrapbook Paper
  • Tape Runner
  • Ribbon, Twine, Button

  • Stamp the chick image with black ink onto white cardstock.
  • Stamping on non-porous white card-stock helps the markers blend easier.
  • Color in the edge of the chick with the light ochre marker.  Use the pale yellow marker to blend and fill in the rest of the chick.
  • Line up chick die with the stamped image.  (cutting side down)  I use a piece of removable tape on my die to hold it in place as I run in through the die cut machine. 
  • Using a nesting tag dies, center and tape the two dies together to create a tag frame.
Shaker Tag pieces:
  • Cut a large tag from the largest nested tag die.
  • Cut a large green dot tag.  Cut a wavy line die on the bottom of the tag. 
  • Adhere bottom of the wavy cut tag onto the blue skies tag.
  • Cut a acetate tag from the next largest nesting tag die.
  • Cut a large purple gingham egg, a floral cracked egg and several small eggs from coordinating scrapbook paper.
  • On the back of the tag frame, add a thin line of adhesive around the inside opening of the tag.
  • Remove the protective coating from both sides of the acetate and place it on top of the adhesive.
  • Cut thin strips from the double-sided foam sheets.  Remove one side of the protective layer from the foam strips and place around the inside edges of the tag.
  • Add shaker bits inside tag.
  • Remove the second side of the protective layer from the foam strips and adhere to the blue skies layer on the inside of the tag.
  • Glue the small floral cracked half egg onto purple gingham egg.
  • Add foam to the back of chick and egg and add to front of the card.
  • Punch a hole on the top of the tag using the crop-a-dile, add purple and white twine.
  • Adhere ribbon bow to top of the tag.
