Kiss Kiss Valentine Shaker Tag Holiday Home Decor by Ginny

Hey there Paper Peeps! Ginny here and I've got a very sweet Valentine treat for you! It's a shaker tag created with the oh so cool Hello Word Frames.
So much cuteness here I can hardly stand it!!!!! The secret to the success of this project is that the frame has straight sides to make it easy to cut the foam...otherwise I'd be in a big mess and glued to the project. Okay...I did glue myself to it....but that happens to me all the time.
I've pulled out all the sparkly bits and trims for this because that's what Valentine is for.
I intentionally adhered the sequins around the edge for equal distribution of the colors and shapes. There's hearts inside and pretty mint along with some holiday postage stamp cut outs.  I didn't want all the sequins to get squished behind the large stamps.

I finished off this tag with a charming little banner in mint to coordinate with the sequins.
Here's how I made the shaker....
I started with the Hello Word Frame with the heart cut outs and a few patterns of holiday paper. There's also some repurposed packaging from the flowers and foam that I traced and cut to fit.

I gave the chippie a base coat of white acrylic paint then used my dabber and pen to apply adhesive to the heart section. Next I sprinkled on the red glitter embossing powder and set it with the heat tool.
I glued the layers together with the sequins and stamps inside, then covered the edges with tinsel trim. Then I added it to my tag and layered on all the embellies.
I'm so pleased with how this turned out!!!! I think I'll be making shakers with the rest of the frames from the package : )

Okay that's all for me. Wishing all of you a happy and productive day : ) G
