How's it shakin'? Shantaie Fowler here with a really fun way to use our mini calendars that will be as much fun for you as it will for the lucky one who gets the card!
Cut a fun shape with a window to see the Mini Calendar of the birth month inside, mark the birthday with a sticker, a stamp or a little confetti hat like I have done with this one. Fill the shaker with sequins, beads, and chunky glitter. I used my Silhouette to cut out this cupcake, but there are lots of ways to make a window if you don't have an ecutter. Dies, (like our wafer die) punches, and good old fashioned scissors will all work just fine!
I looked to my SRM stash for a few decorative elements to "top off" my cupcake and added a sweet heart from Valentines Stickers by the Dozen to a scrap of white card stock and trimmed it out and popped it right on top of the glittered "icing" I also used the Valentines We've Got Your Border for the little flag banner and trim in between my washi tape.
To give the cupcake "wrapper" texture I embossed it with a striped folder and added a sticker from the Birthday Stickers by the Dozen ....can you tell I love these;) Bright, cheerful and fun to personalize, mini calendars just may be the next shakin' trend in shaker cards!
