Step 1

How to make a shaker card tutorial

Using the double shaker surprise card template, cut the main mechanism with a craft knife from the floral design paper. Mountain fold the inner flap to create an easel, and score a small tab along the bottom.

Step 2

Create a pull tab using the template. Attach to the reverse of the small tab you folded in step 1, placing adhesive only on the tab to allow the easel to stand up when pulled.

Step 3

Layer the mechanism onto some red card to create a thin border, securing on the reverse along the sides and bottom only, so the easel can slide. Cut a three-sided top layer from some coordinating card and attach it to the front.

Step 4
