If you are looking for an innovative upcycling idea and enjoy making handmade greeting cards, then this Gorgeous Homemade Shaker Greeting Card is the project for you! This pictorial shows you step-by-step how to create a shaker card by attaching a piece of acetate packaging to a paper card base. The acetate creates a little clear pouch that is perfect for holding, and featuring, fun, various-sized card strips. This is a paper craft that guarantees you'll have fun not only assembling the card, but also, watching the card strips arrange in different ways every time the card is shaken up!

I'm sooooo excited!!! I've been crafting greeting cards for quite some time now but I've never created a mixed media one! This may be the very first one! I've always admired Graphic 45 card stock and this is no exception. The color palette seems almost international with the plaid especially. My husband has thought me crazed for saving back the blister packing material that I have but now I know there was a purpose! Thanks for the inspiration!
