Shaker Tag

The Silhouette Design Store recently had some free files available for a jungle-themed project, and one of the files was for a tag shape. It came with a hole for a ribbon at the top. I decided to modify the tag to make it a shaker tag, so I used the internal offset feature in the Silhouette Design Studio software and cut some acetate to go behind the front frame. I used the sentiment I had designed for my stand mixer card as the greeting on the tag and added some cut gingerbread people I downloaded from Creative Fabrica. I cut out some snowflakes from silver glitter card stock and a whisk from silver card stock. I adhered the whisk and one of the snowflakes to the front of the tag and used the other snowflakes inside the shaker part of the tag. I used green and red metallic beads and some adorable little shaker elements from Hobby Lobby (see photo below) for the shaker element as well. Then I tied some silver and white floss to the top.
