Gel-à-tins fun stuff!

22 Dec

Today I am using the set called Sweet Cakes.

I have been using this set quite a bit, I have other sets on order so hopefully soon I can show you some new projects without cupcakes:)

So, I was not really feeling like making another cupcake card but then I remembered a card a sweet friend and FABULOUS card maker named Candace made and knew that I wanted to try her idea out.  Click here to see her card.

The other day I was using some of my Jenni Bowlin Pins.  They came in this great package.

Well I took the pins out and thought to save the plastic tray, because I knew I’d reuse it.

For this card, the tray is the window of my shaker.

I did not take pictures in the making process of this card.  It was quite a round of trial and error.

I tried to take multiple pictures to show you how the tray works as the pop out window.

 I used the tiny cupcakes for the inside of the shaker and small glass beads that I thought looked like cupcake sprinkles.

We have a fried who refers to the sprinkles as SPINKIES..is that the cutest thing?

This card was fun to make but I did have quite a time getting the hole in the paper fit the plastic tray just right.

But no fear, I am mathematically challenged, so this is probably only an issue to me!

My little ones enjoy shaking the card…shaking…shaking…shaking…”Ok..put the card down now!”

I love the way it turned out…what else have you seen put in these shakers?  We’d love to hear from you.  Leave a link in your comment if you’d like!

 I’d love to hear your ideas!
