Shaker Tag for the Outlawz

The Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge is always Anything Goes, but if you use the "twist" you get 2 chances in the draw at the end of the month.  The Outlawz Forum is a fun and supportive group with 7 challenges a week plus a monthly "Progressive" challenge and I play there as often as possible.

This time the twist for Twisted Thursday is "SHAKE YOUR CONFETTI" - make a shaker card or whatever.  It's been so long since I've done one I decided to do a (sort of) quick tag.  I noticed the graphic when "re-downloading" some of my Etsy purchases from Gecko Galz.  (No, I still haven't retrieved all my digis since "the crash") and thought it would be perfect for a shaker. The quote is from the Scripted Digital Collage set by Gecko Galz that I've printed on acetate and cut out with my Stitched tags by Gina Marie.  There are little gold dots around the quote that don't seem to show up in the pic but I kept with the metallic theme and cut the top layer in gold glitter card stock.  I used transfer tape to stick two pieces of foam together and ran them through my Grand Caliber which did jack them out of shape a bit but I was able to assemble the layers with a decent amount of Doodlebug sequins and beads in between. Punched a hole up top and added some cool metallic ribbon from my stash, et voila! 

I'm also adding this to the DL.Art January Linky challenge, and Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #73 AG


  1. Love you've printed onto acetate to make this fabby tag.

  2. Your "quick" tag is just beautiful! One of my favorite sentiments and love the gold! Thanks so much for stopping by my place and over at Little Acres and your sweet words! I'm actually working on a shaker! Too bad I didn't know I wanted to do this last! Anyway, gorgeous tag!

  3. A great project - thanks for sharing it with us at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends.
