Shaker Box for cover
Use the Big Shot and the Labels 1 Nestabilitites dies to cut out the shapes needed for the shaker box. Using the Third Largest die, cut one from white cardstock. Stamp your image and/or message on this piece and color in. Using the same die, one from clear acetate. Next, take the Third and Fourth Largest dies, place together to form a frame and cut out one from cardstock.

Use the Glossy Accents to adhere the clear acetate to the back of the cardstock frame, let dry. Trim the foam tape lengthwise (3/16” width is good) Apply the tape on the acetate, going completely around the frame’s edge. Make sure that you do not leave any gaps around the edge or the beads will fall out. Remove the protective paper coating from the foam tape. Pour the micro beads or confetti onto the bordered acetate. Aligning the edges, carefully attach the stamped image to the foam tape with the stamped image facing down into the beads. Turnover and shake your beads!
