Shaker shadow box gift.....


Sometimes we just need to make something that little bit special... a gift for a friend maybe or someone special. This project really does have a wow factor... a shadow box which is also a shaker.

This idea would be a great idea for a craft fair too as a display item of things you could make to order to encourage repeat business. The extra time this project takes means you can have it as a high ticket item, a unique hand made statement piece you would sell without a doubt.

The idea is not new I haven't designed the concept I have simply added my own twist, and so can you. I chose my statement stamp from the Lovely friends set. The stamp is just stunning and stamped in the bold yet girly Melon mambo it really does stand proud.

Shakers are fun, who doesn't like things you can interact with you can't help but pick it up and give it a shake to see the pretty sequins dance around. I also added an easel style stand to the back so it stands up freely so it can be used as room decor too.

if you would like to recreate this pretty project the products used are listed below and I also have a step by step Youtube tutorial... so grab a brew, get comfy and enjoy the video.

Happy Christmas and happy stamping xxx Amanda
