It’s Mendi here today with a layout featuring the happy “We Go Together” collection. I love how these papers are perfect for so many things including children’s scrapbook layouts! My daughter has a little guy friend who she spends a lot of time with from our neighborhood, but I didn’t want to create a gushy Valentine’s Day layout about their special relationship and the darling images in this collection were perfect for this!
To balance out those darling peanut butter and jelly jars I made a fun little heart shaker for the top right corner of my layout, paired with some of the adorable bumblebee stickers.
To recreate the shaker element featured on my layout, you will need the following supplies:
- 4 heart outlines cut from thin chipboard (I used Silhouette chipboard for mine)
- 1 heart outline cut from patterned paper for shaker front
- 1 heart of same size from patterned paper for shaker back
- 1 small piece of clear acetate
- 1 dozen pieces of heart confetti
Step 1: Apply adhesive to back of patterned paper heart and adhere to piece of clear acetate. Using scissors trim around the outside edge of your heart (I chose to do this by hand because my acetate was heavy and I didn’t want to damage my die-cutting machine blade).
Step 2: Layer and stack the thin chipboard hearts adding liquid adhesive between each set of hearts. Next add these behind the acetate layer so they are in line with the patterned paper heart.
Step 3: Flip your layered heart (patterned paper side down) and fill with confetti hearts. Finally add the full-sized heart to the back to enclose the confetti. It is now ready to add to the front of a card or layout.
If you aren’t already addicted to making these, I hope you will give this fun technique a try on your next project! 🙂
