Sequin Shaker Blog Hop: Panda Celebration

I have avoided shakers.  They feel a little too much like crafting, which I generally define as 3D type art...which any time that I try I end up with blogs of glue and crooked elements and utter frustration.  But my charming friend, Stacey Schafer, talked me into it - and even texted me words of encouragement as I was driving to Hobby Lobby for foam tape.  She also pointed out the Sequin Shaker Tutorial video by Paulina, the Pretty Pink Posh lady (among her many talents).  So I am giving it a try!

The event is a Sequin Shaker Blog Hop.


I went for a smaller shaker but have already realized the flaw with small and curved - foam tape is straight and wide - so it was a bit of a pain to seal up this shaker.  But I have to admit...I liked it...and I'll do it again....maybe even when I finish this post!

Panda Celebration

The blog hop is open until Monday around midnight PST.  After dragging my feet, I have seen the light and would truly recommend that you give it a try and enter!  Even if you don't, be sure to check out the gallery.

I'm off to try again...

  • Stamps: My Favorite Things Party Balloons, Birthday Greetings, Mama Elephant Pandamonium
  • Paper: Stampin' Up Pretty in Pink
  • Ink: Memento Black, Stampin' Up Pretty in Pink
  • Accessories: Pretty Pink Posh Springtime Mix and 4mm Sparkling Clear sequins, My Favorite Things Party Balloons die, Mama Elephant Landscape Trio die (the cloud border), Lil' Inkers Stitched Rectangle, Hemptique 10-lb white twine
