Baseball is Life Shaker Tag by Lorena

Hello, SRM friends! It's Lorena with you today and I'm excited to be sharing a fun project for the sports lovers in your life. The new Sports Take 2 stickers are the star of the game today!

I started die cutting two round tags from cardstock and acetate. Second, I die cut a circle from the center of one the cardstock tags and adhered the acetate behind it to make the window.

On the base of the tag (which once everything is assembled will be the "inside" of the shaker area) I adhered one of the big ball images from Take 2 Stickers by the Dozen / Baseball. To fill the shaker, I die cut some cardstock sequins and stars, but the fun part was adding lots of tiny baseball balls to the mix!

I simply adhered one of the border stickers from the Take 2 Stickers by the Dozen / Baseball to a piece of white cardstock and punched them with a 1/2 inch punch.

Once the shaker mix was ready, I adhered the two tags (the base one and the acetate one) together with foam tape, leaving a small gap to pour the mix inside.

The final touches were adding the "Baseball is life" sentiment, which I put together using two different border stickers and of course some baker's Twinery Twine. I went with red and black, but grey would look nice too.

I hope you like this idea! It can be used for many different sports just by changing the color combo and using the right stickers: SRM has soccervolleyball and basketball too!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
